Abstract:

The nonoily waste-water streams aboard USS SIERRA AD 18 originating from the crews head, galley and scullery, laundry, pipe shop, and print shop have been characterized. The data have been used to develop mass emission factors for selected parameters in these waste-water streams. Projections have been made to the total ship for total nonoily waste-water discharges for normal in-port operations. Data collected aboard other ships surveyed under this program USS OHARE DD 889, USS SEATTLE AOE 3, and USS INDEPENDENCE CV 62 are being similarly analyzed and correlated. Corroboration and validation of mass emission factors must be accomplished by characterization of the total flow and all subflows deriving from a ship of comparable size. Author
