This report presents a detailed study of shipboard sewage holding tanks suitable for vessels engaged on the Great Lakes - Lower St. Lawrence River trade route. A range of designs has been developed to meet the needs of most ship types, crew sizes, trading patterns, stability criteria and sewage collection systems. Construction, operation, maintenance and safety aspects are analyzed with a view to optimizing the economic impact on vessels that choose total retention as a method of satisfying the requirements of Great Lakes Sewage Pollution Prevention Regulations.
