Friday, July 3. We will be in operation on Saturday, July 4 and Sunday, July 5 as well.
The new boat continues to be owned and maintained by the Monmouth County Health Department and operated by the NY/NJ Baykeeper organization through a cooperative agreement since 2015. The previous POB “Royal Flush” had serviced over 17,500 boats and properly disposed of over 620,000 gallons of sewage over its 20 years operation. In 2019, 1,060 boats were serviced, and 29,100 gallons of sewage was disposed of properly.
