DG: Pump Station for Port Douglas Marina

Install an onshore sewage pumpout facility for the Port Douglas Marina to minimise disposal at sea by commercial boats.

Why it is important?

A sewage pumpout station for the Port Douglas Marina would minimise the release of sewage by the marine industry at sea and reduce the impact of sewage pollution in coastal and marine waters.

Examples of Local Action

  • Gain government and industry support to install, manage and maintain a sewage pumpout facility for the Port Douglas Marina.
