So last year while trying to pump out the sewage from our house boat ( a two hour project). I had the opportunity to speak with one of the park rangers about the 5 house boat line up behind me waiting for my spot at the pump out there at halls crossing. Apparently the bullfrog pump out station was not working again. He said again for about the fifth time this summer. He took me into the pump house there and showed me the relays that keep tripping off line about every 3-5 minutes. He told me that the pump out stations were really old and delapitated. He also said that they were on the docket to get complete new pump out stations for the 2016 season but that got put on hold. I can't remember the reason, because at that point I was fuming with disgust. And let's be honest I was about to pass out because of the smell. Buy the way his suggestion was that I write my congress person. I have not been happy with the pump out stations for some time now and now they have upped the price we all pay to enjoy the lake. Both the parks service and Aramark for entrance fees and buoy and slip fees respectively. So after all that complaining the park ranger did tell me they were getting new pump houses this off season. So my question is, have they done anything about the pump out stations at halls and bullfrog. Or are we going to have to suffer through another season of waiting two or three hours each to pump out and that's if they are working at all ??? I talked to one house boater there that the week before he left the sewage in his boat because he could not get it to work and after 3 hours gave up. He was there to dump that when I was talking to him. Has anyone been to the north end and seen any signs of hope that we will get relief from this??? What do you all know ??
