Mobile app locates pumpouts
in Washington state

The Washington State Parks Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Grant Program, in partnership with Washington Sea Grant, is excited to announce that Pumpout Nav, a free iOS and Android app for boaters, has expanded to Washington.

You can now use the interactive tool to find nearly 200 pumpout and portable toilet dump stations in Washington, in addition to hundreds of pumpout and floating restroom facilities in Oregon and California.

Pumpout Nav uses your location information to suggest the nearest pumpout stations on a map or as a list, helping you find the amenities you need. The app displays each facility’s operational status, cost (if applicable), hours and details about the location of the pumpout within that facility.

The app also provides instruction on how to use a pumpout station and information about the environmental risks and applicable regulations regarding sewage discharge.

That’s not all!

You can create a personalized account in the app to log pumpout activity, save your favorite pumpout locations and plan your next pumpout stop. You can also use the app to report issues directly to a facility, helping marinas and other waterfront facilities stay on top of repairs.

We recommend you download the free Pumpout Nav app through the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Clean Vessel Act funding

The national Clean Vessel Act Grant Program was established after Congress passed the Clean Vessel Act of 1992. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administers the national CVA Grant Program through a competitive annual process among all states and territories. Funding comes from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, which is supported by excise taxes on sport fishing equipment, recreational boats, boat fuel and interest on the fund. In Washington State, the State Parks Boating Program administers the CVA Grant Program.
