No Discharge in Puget Sound
It is illegal to discharge black water anywhere in Puget Sound by State law. The No Discharge Zone extends for all of Washington area Puget Sound waters up to the Canadian border. This law is a good reminder for no discharge. Compliance means using an approved sanitation device and having through-hull valves secured with wire ties or zip ties. Coast Guard inspections already look for secure thru hull valves to comply with the Federal No Discharge policy as part of their random safety inspections. It is illegal to discharge (treated and untreated) black water sewage. Gray water is not included in the regulation, gray water from onboard sinks and showers.
