not land and Im sure it used to be land as the reference point.
Yes, Chris you are correct. The map that you linked is for treated sewage release from "Declared Ships" ie charter
boats, however the map and regulations
for other vessels are identical.
The Grade 3 treated sewage from your Saniloo treatment system may be discharged within half a nautical mile of land provided that it is not within that distance of reef, oyster
leases, people in water
, etc. (or specifically prohibited areas.)
I don't agree that it is a good idea or ethical behaviour to discharge your Saniloo product in Hills Inlet, Cid Harbour or many other places that Queensland
law permits, however! Our poo laws are a crock (holding tank?) of sh t (sewage,treated or not).
