An investigation into the problems of economically processing sewage on board Naval ships resulted in the development of two computer simulations employing Monte Carlo analysis to describe the generation of sewage. Simulation one was based on a non-homogeneous Poisson process. For simulation two, an empirical distribution describing the arrival behavior of sewage to the holdingprocessing unit over a 24 hour period was applied to known data on sewage generation. Results of the two simulations were compatible with one another. Aside from pointing out a most feasible combination of holding tank capacity, processor rate and processing policy, the simulations also indicated that a revision of the Navys design parameter for the daily per capita sewage generation rate was in order.
