Abstract:

The Navy will have to comply with Uniform National Discharge Standards UNDS requirements, which were recently established by amendments to the Clean Water Act, that control the overboard discharge of incidental wastewaters from ships of the Armed Forces in the contiguous zone of the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Defense are requiring the use of marine pollution control devices MPCDs to control 25 discharges which were identified in the Federal Register Volume 64, No.89, Monday May 10,1999. The MPCD performance standards and promulgating regulations regarding the design of the devices are being established.
