Boat Pump-out

BAR HARBOR — A Maine state grant program to install boat sewage pump-out facilities at municipal piers will be taken advantage of by town councilors here to place a station for recreational boats at the town pier, at a likely cost of $20,000.

Councilors earlier this year had supported construction of a facility that would handle small cruise ships, but the estimated price of nearly $400,000 was turned down by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, town manager Dana Reed reported in a memo shared with town councilors July 3.

Mr. Reed suggested in his memo that the potential cruise ship facility at the international ferry terminal could be suited for a larger pump-out facility.
