Pumpout Locations in Maryland

Information in this guide is subject to change without notice. For this reason, it is recommended that boaters call ahead. Data provided below was last updated June 2015.

Pumpout Fee - Most of the pumpouts in Maryland have been funded through the Clean Vessel Act and charge a fee of no more than $5.00 for the first 50 gallons of sewage pumped plus an additional 10 cents per gallon for every gallon above 50. However marinas that funded their pumpouts privately may charge more than this. Boaters should call ahead to check fees.
