Know where you can dump!

Floaties aren't nice for us or the fish. You have to be 500m off-shore to dump your untreated sewage.

Boaties, check you know the Bay of Islands discharge rules!

Dispose of your boat sewage properly. No discharging untreated sewage in the dark blue areas highlighted on the map below!

  • Within all Northland harbours and the Bay of Islands
  • Less than 500 m from the high-tide mark
  • Less than 500 m from a marine farm
  • Less than 200 m from a marine reserve

Alternatively, pump it out at a marina pumping facility.
