Thank you for the information. I stand corrected about the color of the treated waste discharge.
It is interesting that I have resided in four marinas
here in the SF south bay, and not one of them would allow the use of a approved treatment system. In addition to my current
marina there was another one (now closed) that stated that even though the treated wasted was sanitary, they had been informed that it contained nutrients that contributed to marine
growth that fouled boat bottoms. Also, there is a fifth marina down here that I know will not allow the use of approved treatment systems.
What is funny
about all this is that I own a new and yet to be installed LectraSan unit. I purchased it before I found out that I couldn't use it while a resident of the marina. This was years ago so I figured that I would just save it until I began heading back south. Since then it seems that most of SOCAL waters have become a NDZ.
I sure wish that somehow this whole waste discharge thing could be made right. It just seem so... stupid!
