Funding for Pumpout and Dump Stations - Repairs to Stations

Funds are available to marinas for repairs of pumpout/dump stations. Even if the marina did not receive money through the Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Program for the installation of your system, we can still provide up to 75 percent of the cost of your repairs. Grant Agreements must be approved prior to the repair.

Since you will be receiving federal money through the CVA Program for your repairs, you will be required to adhere to the following protocols.

  • Grant funding: You will be required to enter into a grant agreement with the state of New Hampshire.

    If the grant will be less than $5,000 (or cumulative costs of contracts with NHDES are less than $5,000), the paperwork will be approved by the NHDES Commissioner. The agreement for these grants can be drafted and approved in one to three months.

    Grants over $5,000 (or cumulative costs of contracts with NHDES that are above $5,000) require approval by the Governor and Executive Council. This paperwork may take an average of six months to complete from the initial request until official approval.
  • Fees for use: Marinas that receive funding through the CVA Program for pumpout/dump stations (including installation or repairs) can charge their customers no more than $5 per pumpout. The pumpout/dump station must be available to the entire boating public, not just members.
  • Life of the system: The marina must keep the pumpout/dump station in operating condition for seven years. If repairs are needed, you may again utilize the CVA Program funds.
