Pump-out Boats

The New Montauk Pump Out Boat before leaving the builder’s bay.

We recognize the importance of leisure time on the water and the allure of recreational vessels to call East Hampton home and, or a destination. In order to allow for this, the people must take responsibility for the threats this use creates in our estuaries. To do our part, the Trustees maintain a state of the art sewage pump-out fleet in Three Mile Harbor and Montauk Harbor/Lake Montauk. We offer complimentary sewage pump-out service to any and all vessels within these harbors. It is the responsibility of all vessels to keep the sewage created on board from entering our common waters. The community as a whole can benefit in many ways from shared responsible use of the harbors and bays. It is imperative for you to do your part.

Pump out boat service is available from Mid – May through Mid – October. There are also SELF SERVE STATIONS available seasonally in both Three Mile Harbor and Lake Montauk. The stations operate 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week and are self service. However, if the tank is full the station will not operate and will re-open after tank has been emptied.

If you are out on the water and need a pump out you may hail our courteous and friendly boat captains on VHF Channel 73.

Trustee Pump Out Boats will NOT be operational under the following conditions:

  • Restricted visibility
  • Sea Conditions/ wave height above two (2) feet
