The Harbormaster's Department, in conjunction with a Massachusetts State Department of Marine Fisheries grant, provides and operates a shore-side pump out facility and a pump out boat. Wastewater is collected from boats and is disposed of into the Newburyport wastewater treatment plant. This program has pumped thousands of gallons of raw sewerage from vessels that normally would have been released into Newburyport 's waterways.
