Holding tank requirement for Panama canal transit

Hello,

we are about to get our boat measured in preparation for the Panama canal transit.

We have a holding tank but it's not connected to the head.

Does anyone know if having a working holding tank is a strict requirement for doing the canal transit? Do they check this?

Many thanks

Wil

Re: Holding tank requirement for Panama canal transit

Question: Do you have a holding tank?
Answer: Yes

Large vessels without a sewage treatment system are not allowed to anchor in Lake Gatun and need to be scheduled straight through. Lake Gatun is the water source for Panama City.
