From Bridgeport, CT to Locust Point, NY, ENB is now covering all of our regular service areas along the north shore of the Western Long Island Sound. All of Long Island Sound is a No-Discharge Area, so our pumpout boats provide a free and easy service for boaters to do the right thing by offloading onboard sewage responsibly. Our fleet of pumpout boats collect boat sewage off thousands of boats every season, thereby removing this threat of water degradation from coastal Connecticut and New York. Thank you for helping us keep the Sound clean!
The ENB Pumpout Program is getting an early start in 2022 in Norwalk and Westport, CT service locations only, offering vessel pumpouts in those coastal areas as of April 13th. Boaters can make pumpout requests in these locations online here at www.eastnorwalkblue.org and they will get email confirmations when the request is completed. All other locations that we normally service along the north shore of the Western Long Island Sound, from Bridgeport, CT to Locust Point, NY, are scheduled to begin on May 1st.

Stay tuned for the publication of the 2021 Harbor Health Study which is a collaborative effort between Harbor Watch, Copps Island Oysters, and East Norwalk Blue to collect data on the ecosystem health of local embayments.
ENB-R, the research arm of ENB, headed by Marine Scientist Dick Harris, is involved in utilizing one of our pumpout boats to collect water quality data in Stamford, Five Mile River, Norwalk, Saugatuck, Bridgeport, Housatonic River, and New Haven Harbor. All 7 harbors were monitored for dissolved oxygen, salinity, water temperature, turbidity, and chlorophyll, which are critical ecosystem parameters. ENB will disseminate the report to our email list and also post it on our website for all to view within the next few weeks.
