OPERATIONAL EXPERIENCE WITH A U.S. COAST GUARD R&D PROTOTYPE SHIPBOARD WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM

This paper summarizes the operational experience which was gained during the first six months of the test and evaluation of an R&D prototype wastewater treatment system on board a 157-ft (47.8-m) coastal buoy tender, the CGC Red Beech (WLM 686). The ship has a crew of 34 officers and men, and operates in and around New York Harbor. The CGC Red Beech uses a salt water flush, and is equipped with a collection, holding, and transfer system. Sewage is pumped from a holding tank amidships to the wastewater treatment system in the ship's after steering compartment by a grinder pump. The treatment system removes gross solids by screening the effluent through a hydrasieve.
