Abstract:

In 1973 the Marine Boards assignment was to review coastal wastewater management practices and their environmental impacts. The report considers various waste materials now disposed through ocean outfalls, evaluates several waste disposal systems, and assesses federal regulations governing waste disposal. It deals particularly with the rationale for setting federal standards to protect the marine environment.
