ESDHD LAUNCHES SOLAR-POWERED PUMP OUT VESSEL EVENTS

ESDHD LAUNCHES SOLAR-POWERED PUMP OUT VESSEL EVENTS

Publish Date: July 17, 2017

The East Shore District Health Department (ESDHD) is proud to announce that they will be replacing one of their gas-powered pump out boats with a fully electric, zero emissions, solar-powered pump out vessel. The Shoreline Regional Pump Out Boat Program serves the waters off of Branford, East Haven, Guilford, New Haven and West Haven. Since 2000, the Health District has administered a “Federal Clean Vessel Act” grant that provides operating funds to reduce waste in the Long Island Sound.

To complete this project, ESDHD and the Shoreline Regional Pump Out Boat Committee will be hosting several events including a “kick-off event” at the Stony Creek Brewery, as well as a golf tournament at The Pine Orchard Yacht & Country Club & a Thimble Islands Boat Cruise!

Currently, two boats operate Friday through Monday, from May through October. Any recreational vessel using waters from any of the five towns listed above may have their vessel's waste holding tank pumped—FREE OF CHARGE! Over the past 17 years, this program has pumped well over 300,000 gallons of sewage, which may have otherwise ended up in the water!

 

ESDHD is in the process of working with a local marina to build a fully electric, zero emissions, solar-powered pump out vessel—which will be the first pump out boat of its kind—to replace one the gas-powered vessels. ESDHD is excited to enhance their ability to keep our waters and environment as clean and safe as possible for residents of the shoreline!

 

CT DEEP has funded this project at 75%, tasking us with fundraising the remaining money to build this vessel.

We will be hosting several fundraising events for what is being affectionately referred to as “MISSION: ZERO EMISSIONS” over the next few months:

 

  •  Kick-Off Fundraising Event on Friday, July 21st, 3-5pm at Stony Creek Brewery (Rain date 7/28).
  • “Mission: Zero Emissions” Golf Tournament at Pine Orchard Yacht & Country Club, on September 21st, 2017, with a shotgun start at 1pm (Rain date 9/28).
  • Thimble Island Boat Cruise: Join Captain Mike and the crew of the Sea Mist as you tour the famous Thimble Islands off the coast of Branford on September 21st, 2017.
  • “Mission: Zero Emissions Banquet Dinner at the Country club following the golf tournament and the cruise.
  • We also have a “Go Fund Me” page members of the community may contribute to: https://www.gofundme.com/solar-power-pump-out-boat

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW by William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy The Taming of the Shrew takes a farcical look at how society views the role of women. In the pursuit of the love of fair Bianca, her suitors must find a way for her shrewish older sister, Katherine, to marry in order for their father, Baptista, to give his blessing to wed Bianca. Hilarity ensues as suitors attempt to win Bianca’s love and the daring Petruchio attempts to “tame” the outspoken, opinionated Katherine. This work has inspired many adaptations such as the hit musical, Kiss Me Kate and the comedic high school movie 10 Things I Hate About You. This summer the West Haven Council on the Arts brings The Taming of the Shrew to you with a 1940’s twist.
