What a day for a clean up! On Saturday, Oct. 21st, ENB teamed up with BUD/S & Beyond and Norm Bloom & Son Oyster Company to clean up marine debris along the coastal sections of several Norwalk Islands. We combed over the beaches of Shea, Grassy and Copps Island, picking up debris that has washed ashore over the years and creates an eyesore on these otherwise beautiful coastal islands. The debris was put onto boats and hauled over to our dockside headquarters in East Norwalk. From there it was loaded into dumpsters and hauled off to the transfer station. Just over 18 cubic yards of marine debris was ultimately hauled off those 3 islands that day. Thanks to the help from the elite armed services candidates at BUD/S & Beyond, along with Norm Bloom & Son equipment and personnel, we were able to beautify these pristine environments in need of a cleanup. We will continue these coastal island cleanup annually in order to maintain the health and vitality of these natural coastal habitats.

ENB Pumpout has just gone past 2,000 vessel waste tank pumpouts this 2017 boating season, keeping some 30,000+ gallons of sewage out of the Sound marine environment! As we officially wind down our program for the year, we’d like to thank all the responsible boaters out that who used our free service to keep the Western Sound free of waste tank discharges. Servicing boats along the North shore of the Western Long Island Sound, ENB makes it easy to get waste tank pumpouts without having to be at your boat when the pumpout occurs. Boaters can make the pumpout request online and will receive and email confirmation when completed. All will benefit from sewage-free harbors and bays. Thank you for a great season!
