Hello Seaplane Experts!
I have been asked to consult a local municipality in determining where and how seaplanes should, or actually do, dispose of their sewage.
Especially larger aircraft like the J3 Cub are often equipped with addidional sewage tanks (concealed as belly pods) and the question arises naturally as to where and how the solid and liquid material collected during flights may be disposed of, in a environmentally responsible manner.
I know that large fleet operators often simply dispose directly into the waterways, which causes occasional collisions of fecal matter with boats and swimmers.
This is also often cited as the real reason for invasive species and a big concern to local authorities, when it comes to allowing seaplane access.
We have found traces of anerobic rectum fermentium bacterium in various rivers and ponds frequented by seaplanes, indicating a need for immediate action by the authorities.
A New York State J3-Cub pilot was recently penalized for dumping his remaining kerosene, his remaining chemtrailing fluid and several gallons of fecal matter into a pristine lake in an undisclosed state in the Notheast. He later claimed a lack of facilities.
How do you deal with the various liquids and solid materials in need of immediate disposal after flying your seaplane?
1. Fecal matter and liquids
2. Engine OIL (also known as 7IO)
4. Chemtrail Liquids
5. Residual lead from the fuel tanks
Thanks for all info!
