Georgia MSD Regulations

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 11-24-2009

Be SURE to read BOTH notes below, and, then, if anyone else has insights on this issue, PLEASE click the “Comment on This Posting/Marina/Anchorage/Bridge” link below, and register your input.

A note to cruisers traveling through Georgia waters. Georgia DNR requires that all boats equipped with a marine toilet must NOT have a “Y” valve in the system. Not Tyraped, not padlocked but removed if one exists.
The law says nothing about transient boats just boats. My local DNR Ranger (Lake Wakter F, George) says that he has not been told to inspect boats for proper plumbing but will do so if ordered to.

Subject: GA marine toilet rules
Cruising News: I believe Capt. Nichols got some garbled info. The Georgia no y-valve law pertains only to certain lakes specifically named in the
regulation–I think lakes George, Hartwell, Russell, Lanier and Thurmond (may of missed some).
