Got a saniloo (sewage treatment thingy installed aboard).
Part of the reason i got it was the new laws in queensland
recently put into place but have since discovered that they are essentially not enforced.
Still feel alot better about just pumping straight over the side with some sort of sewage treatment device though.
And i gotta say I do agree with posters who say that we should be doing everything we can too minimize our impact, thereby ensuring the oceans we all enjoy so much stay healthy which is kinda the win.
Having said that, some people were posting
about how it's difficult too find actual evidence about effect of pump outs...
Thats a link to a summary (sure you can find the whole paper somewhere) of a study done by someone in moreton bay on fecal pollution etc etc linked too boaties. And actually the study found no significant pollution due too boats at popular anchorages
and they were testing for fecal colliforms.
