OIL AND OILY WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION MEASURES IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY

The paper deals with control of bilge and ballast waste. The system of bilge oily waste treatment described incorporates two or more oil water separators and the necessary pumps, tanks, and piping to make effective use of them. Means of reducing the volume of oil and water allowed to enter the bilge are suggested as effective measures for reducing the neccessary flow capacity of separators and for extending system life. Segregated ballast systems are considered the cleanest, but other ballast pollution control systems are also discussed. A compensated fuel system, used by U.S. Navy is described in which ballast water fills fuel tanks at the same rate as fuel is used. The paper discusses measures taken to attain acceptable discharge concentrations. The discussion on the paper is included. Order from NSFI as No. 19902.
