A revised version to Title 40, Part 140, is proposed to solicit public comments and to promote research to advance the technological state of the art concerning marine sanitation devices. It provides for no overboard discharge of vessel sewage wastes in land-locked freshwater lakes, freshwater reserviors, other freshwater impoundments, or rivers not capable of navigation by an interstate vessel on which a marine toilet facility has been installed. In all other navigable waters, USCG- certified flow-through treatment devices could be installed and operated on vessels. This standard becomes effective on Jan. 30, 1977 for new vessels and on Jan. 30, 1980 for existing vessels. Details of the proposal are included.
