Dometic Marine said it supports the additional no-discharge zones in the Boston and New York areas recently proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

“Over the last 30 years we have been encouraging boat owners to enjoy boating responsibly and not discharge sewage directly into the sea,” said Jim Kerrigan, vice president of OEM sales for the Americas, in a statement. “We are delighted to see the EPA continue its valuable work to protect the marine environment, and we will do our utmost to support their ongoing ‘clean water’ initiatives.”

No-discharge zones are set up to protect aquatic habitats and protect drinking water intake zones to safeguard human health.

The seven proposed zones are New York’s Long Island Sound and the coastal waters of six Cape Cod towns — Chatham, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. For such a ban to be considered, individual states must prove that there are adequate facilities for boats to pump out their holding tanks.
