On the 8am Waiheke to Auckland sailing on 12 November 2010, Fullers emptied the sewage tanks in the Gulf.
I have been in email contact with Mike Lee who has in no uncertain words told the contact at ARC that the pump out facility was put in at taxpayers' expense in 2005 and Fullers are meant to be using it.
The Harbourmaster pollution officer and Fullers are to be contacted about the matter.
UPDATE: Fullers have come back to ARC and advised that they did not empty the sewage tanks and say that it must be a problem with their venting system and will have to investigate. The intensity was the same as if they were emptying the tanks so they have a problem.
