This paper discusses the fundamentals of sewage treatment as applicable to watercraft, particularly towboats and tugs. The initial discussion deals with the composition of sewage and the procedures by which its effect on the receiving body of water are measured. Municipal methods of treatment are discussed because these have been the "tried and proven." Since the attempts to adapt municipal methods to the requirements of watercraft have resulted in a very limited degree of success, the author tries to show the impracticability of using this approach and substitutes a method which fulfills the necessary requirements.
