The Massachusetts Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Program

The nationally recognized Massachusetts Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Program is administered by the Division of Marine Fisheries with grant funding provided through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Program. CVA reimburses up to 75% of the total project costs to cities, towns and private marinas for their pumpout facilities.

  • Led the nation with free pumpouts for recreational boaters
  • More pumpout boats in service than any other state
  • Free waterproof pumpout guide at marinas and harbormaster’s offices
  • Over 4 million gallons pumped!

For more information about the CVA Program, contact:
