Pumpout Boat Program

Learn More

Since 2015, NY/NJ Baykeeper has partnered with Monmouth County Health Department to provide free pumpouts to recreational boaters in the Shrewsbury and Navesink Rivers.

Help us reduce raw sewage pollution by requesting your FREE pumpout on the Navesink or Shrewsbury Rivers call 848-231-2202 or channel 9 (if our vessel is in sight) on the water. You do not have to be present for your boat to be serviced.

NY/NJ Baykeeper is glad to announce that we will be operating Pump Out Boat service for boats located on Raritan Bay in Monmouth and Middlesex Counties during the 2022 season.

Starting on Sunday June 5th, the Baykeeper pump out boat will operate on alternate Sundays until Sunday September 25th.

We will also continue to work cooperatively with other entities on logistics that may allow for increased service.

The concern and support for much-needed comprehensive long-term plan for pump out operations along the Raritan Bay by the Bayshore Mayors Association are greatly appreciated.

To schedule service please call Capt. Mike Schumacher at: 848-231-2202 or channel 9 (if our vessel is in sight) on the water. 

Please note: We are currently ONLY providing pumpouts in the Shrewsbury & Navesink Rivers, and in certain locations in Raritan Bay. Due to the lack of funding and administrative capacity we are not providing this service in some areas of Raritan Bay or Jamaica Bay. We look forward to working with all potential agencies, organizations and others to develop a way to bring sustainable pumpout services in the future.
