Re: Wastewater Systems for Tugboat Use

On board wastewater treatment equipment seems to be more exemplified by its abuse rather than its use. For example, various cruise lines are fined at the rate of millions of dollars per year by the Feds for bypassing their on board water treaters and dumping directly into the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. The intentional bypassing is a felony. Most recently Carnival settled bypassing cases (for mostly oil-contaminated wastewater) from as far back as 2012 for a reported $40 million.

So, when you see tar balls on your favorite beach next summer it may not be from just the spills of the off-shore oil guys or submarine seeps.
