Free pump-out services

The Park Board’s Burrard and Heather Civic Marinas offer free pump-out services to all pleasure craft. 

The free pump-outs are a key part of our ongoing effort, Pump, Don’t Dump, to improve and protect water quality in False Creek. Boat sewage is a source of fecal bacteria in our waters that puts public health and wildlife at risk.

  • Staff are available to assist from 7:00am to 6:00pm daily from May 20, to September 4, 2017
