Tell-tale dye shows up a dump
POLLUTION: A tell-tale dye system that shows if a boat discharges it's toilet or holding tank in the wrong place could well catch on in Europe. Gary Sutcliffe, operations director of LeeSan (the marine sanitation and pump-out equipment specialists), reports on a new trend in the USA.
Any 'discharge' will surround the offending vessel in a nice bright green ring.
Although there aren't any concrete plans to bring it to the UK as yet, the simple and innovative system has proved effective - in one day alone last year 24 boats were fined for discharging overboard on Florida's Intracoastal Waterway.
