Abstract : The problem of sewage and waste disposal from U. S. Naval ships is the subject of the report. The paper discussed four optional methods for the disposal of shipboard domestic wastes. The annualized investment and operating costs associated with the implementation of each of the options are presented. The model considers non-nuclear, sea-going surface ships with a manning level greater than 50 men. Estimates were developed on a per ship per class basis and aggregated for the total surface fleet. This approach permits the investigation of different combinations of the options by merely specifying the number and type of ships to be considered in any option. (Author)
