The Freedom Foundation is proposing a rule change that would prevent the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) from evicting houseboat residents.
Last October, the agency threatened to shut down two Olympia area marinas, Martin and Westbay, if they did not evict the houseboat residents that lived there by Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28.

Houseboats have always seemed neat to me. I wonder what they do with their sewage? Out in the ocean I don’t think it would hurt to just dump it but in a marina that would be a problem.

I have never seen a houseboat that I’d take on the ocean. Generally I think, it’s like an RV- you accumulate your black water until you’re tied up again and can pump out.

We visited friends who have a houseboat on the Columbia River. There’s a regular service to come pump the pucky tank. It’s an interesting lifestyle, that’s for sure!

The sewage is pumped out as in all Marina's in the Puget Sound, and goes into the sewage system and processing plants. It could be that the poeple they want to evict are not on the system. There are deadbeats in boats etc anchored out the pump out into the sea.
Now Victoria Canada pumps all their crap into the Straits of Juan DE Fuca. The crabs love it(I don't eat crab!)

From the article, the people are not deadbeats and are in full compliance with the law. Some DNR wannabe dictator(s) drafted a rule without any legal basis and then tried to enforce it.

The bureaucrats who do that sort of thing need to start becoming crab bait.
