A and DoD identified a list of 39 types of discharges incidental to the normal operations of vessels of the Armed Forces and evaluated them during Phase I of UNDS. Consultations with personnel having equipment expertise were held on each discharge to identify available data and data gaps. Sampling data were collected from various vessels, where needed, to supplement existing data. Concurrently, existing laws and regulations were reviewed, including applicable international, Federal, State, and local standards. In addition, consultation meetings were held with interested Federal agencies, States, and environmental oganizations.
