Yacht Basin Inc. has opened a sewage pump-out station, the first of its kind on Spa Creek, for boat holding tanks, a state official announced yesterday.
The company built the facility with financial aid from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, said DNR Secretary Torrey C. Brown.
The DNR has helped 66 marinas install pump-out equipment in an effort to prevent the illegal dumping of sewage into state waters.
Port Annapolis and Annapolis Landing marinas on Back Creek also offer pump-out stations.
They are among 32 privately financed facilities.
For information about the new pump-out station, call the Yacht Basin at 263-3544.
For information about other pump-out facilities, contact the DNR's Boating Administration at 974-2918.
