Pumpout Boat - Harbormaster's Office



The Harbormaster’s Office operates the Pumpout Boat DAHLGREN. This vessel is a hybrid, diesel-electric-solar, welded, aluminum boat. The boat is in service seven (7) days a week approximately from the middle of March through the middle of November. The rest of the year the vessel operates only on Saturday, weather permitting. During this time, call the office with your location, vessel name, and the approximate amount of gallons to be pumped off, and your vessel will be placed in the queue. The charge is $5 per tank, up to 50 gallons. Anything beyond that is an additional $1 per tank for every 10 gallons.

The current hours of operation are on our homepage. The vessel can be contacted on VHF 17 and via mobile at 410-320-6852. It is best to contact DAHLGREN as early as possible during the service day. The boat begins service in Spa Creek, heads to Weems Creek, services Back Creek after noon, and then it returns to Spa Creek for the end of the service day.

Be advised that it is illegal to discharge untreated waste effluent into Annapolis City Waters. Aside from our popular pumpout service, boaters may also utilize subsidized pumpout stations located at private marinas in Annapolis area waters.
