Monroe County has contracted with On The Hook Marine Services to begin temporary mobile vessel pump-out services starting Oct. 1 in the following anchorages:
Services will be provided temporarily while Monroe County continues to seek a new vendor to provide long-term mobile pump-out services to vessels anchored throughout the Florida Keys. Register for this free service at www.monroecounty-fl.gov/pumpout or by calling 305-833-1978.
How It Works
Upon first service, vessels will be provided an orange pump-out flag to be flown when service is requested. This flag shall be flown from a visible location aboard the vessel. Service will be provided only when the pump-out flag is properly displayed. Vessels will also receive a monthly endorsement sticker that will serve as documentation for compliance with the Monroe County Proof of Pump-out Ordinance 015-2017.
A weekly service schedule can be found at www.onthehookmarine.com. Every effort will be made to provide your vessel with a routine, weekly pump-out service, if requested. However, weather, safety or other scheduling considerations cannot guarantee that you will be provided service on a routine schedule. Shoreside pump-out stations are also available throughout Monroe County and can be found at www.monroecounty-fl.gov/pumpout.
