Abstract:

Field tests of the Navys ship-to-shore sewage transfer system were conducted at the San Diego Naval Station during 1977. Field tests of installed shipboard Collection, Holding and Transfer CHT systems were conducted aboard, primarily, destroyer type vessels to determine the hydraulic behavior of these systems when connected together in nests. Procedures for connecting and disconnecting nests of ships were developed and documented. The effect of pier sewer system loading by multiple ship sewage discharging was examined. Sewage generation rates from activated CHT systems were also monitored. Shipboard CHT systems and pierside sewers are a simple and effective way to transport shipboard wastewater to shoreside treatment facilities. CHT systems are reliable if proper procedures are understood. Key modifications to control systems and regular maintenance procedures are included in the recommendations section of this report to help the reliability of the system.
