2021 Pump Out Services

The Dartmouth Pump Out Boat has been repaired. Pump Out service will resume for the 2021 season immediately. We do have a backlog of requests made while our boat was out of service. We are working to complete all pending requests as weather allows.

The Preferred method for requesting pump out service is through email ( If you are requesting that our office provide you with confirmation of our service to your vessel, or other specific questions about your pump out, the only way we can provide that response is through a reply to your email request. We do not have the staff available to return phone messages.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we strive to meet your needs with minimal staff availability.

You can request pump out service via:

2021 Waterways Permit Decals

All permit decals were mailed to the address on your invoices on May 14, 2021.  Postal service delivery times will vary based upon distance and Postal Service staffing. If you do not receive your decals by May 28,2021, please check with your postal carrier. If you have received a delinquency notice regarding boat excise taxes, your decals cannot be issued until the Collector’s Office directs us to issue those permits.

Please open your mailing carefully as the thin decals often hide once they are let out of the mailing envelopes. All mailings were checked multiple times to confirm that your decals were enclosed.
Thank you and happy boating!

Arthur F. Dias Float Update

To protect the dock floats associated with the Town Pier and Launch Ramps at the Dias Landing located at 75 Gulf Road from winter weather and ice, all floats and gangways attached to that facility will be removed on November 19, 2020.  These floats will be stored in the facility parking area until the spring of 2021. 

The ramps and pier will remain open for use at the discretion and sole risk of individual mariners.

Pumpout Service Ends

All Pumpout services in Dartmouth will end at noon on November 17, 2020 and all equipment will be winterized due to the predicted freezing temperatures. This closure includes the on demand harbor Pumpout service as well as the shoreside pumpout equipment at the Maritime center. We look forward to seeing you again next season.
