A pilot plant was designed, constructed and operated to show the feasibility of providing a facility for the collection, storage and disposal of waste from recreational watercraft. An on-board holding tank was installed in each of ten boats for total impoundment of all effluent and for the connection to a dockside sewage collection system through a quick-connect coupling. Each boat was provided with a pump, tank and macerator. At dockside, each boat holding tank was pumped directly into a piped collection system. The project demonstrated that on-board storage of watercraft waste and subsequent discharge to an underwater storage tank was effective and economical. This project showed that the discharge of sewage from boats into rivers, lakes, waterways and estuaries could be eliminated. (Author)
