Around the Bras d’Or

The CEPI continues to support efforts to divert wastewater from the Bras d’Or, including helping pump-out station operators and boaters comply with the Bras d’Or’s non-discharge of boating sewage designation. There is zero tolerance for the dumping of sewage from pleasure boats into the Bras d’Or! Recently, we organized a Joint Enforcement Patrol with Transport Canada, UINR, Aboriginal Fishery Guardians from Waycobah and Potlotek, RCMP Coastal Watch, Cape Breton Regional Police Service Marine Unit, Nova Scotia Natural Resources, Nova Scotia Environment, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to check boaters on the Bras d’Or for compliance with the non-discharge regulation, boating safety, and fisheries regulations.
