Ocean County's Pumpout Boat Fleet:
Bay Saver and Bay Defender
Serving Northern Barnegat Bay
up Captain Harry Thorne on the Bay Saver.

In 2014, the "Bay Saver" was joined by the "Bay Defender" to service the high demand of the northern Barnegat Bay to the Manasquan River. They are both operated by the Township of Brick and berthed at Traders Cove Municipal Marina, right next to Mantoloking Bridge County Park.

The "Bay Saver" was purchased by Ocean County in 2003 and is operated by the Township of Brick.

This pumpout boat services the northern Barnegat Bay and tidal portions of the Metedeconk River.

Circle of Life and Water Warrior
Serving Central Barnegat Bay
up Captain Jerry Golembeski at the helm of the Circle of Life.

The first pumpout boat in NJ, the "Circle of Life," which is owned and operated by the Borough of Seaside Park, was purchased in 1998 and operates in central Barnegat Bay off of Island Beach State Park and the busy Tices Shoal area.

Because of the overwhelming demand and success of the pumpout boat program, the County added a second boat for the central Barnegat Bay area at the end of the 2008 boating season.

Pictured with the pupils are (from right to left) Freeholder Director Joseph H. Vicari, who serves as liaison to the Ocean County pumpout boat program, Silver Bay Elementary School Principal Joseph Pizza, 4th Grade Teacher Jacqueline LeRiche and (former) Pumpout Boat Captain Jerry Golembeski. 2009

The Bay Sweeper is operated by the Tuckerton Seaport in addition to the Waste Watcher II, servicing the open public water of southern Barnegat Bay, Little Egg Harbor and Great Bay, where pumpout services have been in high demand.

As the County has done with most of its boats, local schoolchildren participated in a boat-naming contest to name the boat and learn about the importance of keeping the Barnegat Bay clean. The winning name was chosen by the fifth grade classes at the Tuckerton Elementary School.
