What is a Marine Sanitation Device (MSDs)?

A marine sanitation device (MSD) is “any equipment for installation on board a vessel which is designed to receive, retain, treat, or discharge sewage, and any process to treat such sewage.” Under Section 312 of the Clean Water Act (CWA), sewage discharges from vessels are controlled in part by regulating the equipment that treats or holds the sewage (marine sanitation devices).

Need your marine sewage treatment device serviced? We offer a full range of services for marine sewage treatment plants (STP) and marine sanitation devices (MSD). We provide equipment, consumables, spare parts, and services for marine sewage treatment devices.

What are the three types of Marine Sanitation Devices (MSDs)?

Type I MSDs are flow-through devices suitable for vessels up to 65 feet in length. These devices use a combination of maceration and disinfection to treat vessel sewage. After pulverizing the solids, the effluent is exposed to disinfectants (often chlorine tablets) that reduce bacteria levels to below the established limits under the Clean Water Act. In some cases, bactericide can be generated from the saltwater using special electrodes so that no added disinfectant products are needed.

Type II MSDs are flow-through devices suitable for larger vessels. Type II devices are biological systems. First, sewage is aerated so that the bacteria already present in the sewage can thrive and begin to consume/break down the sewage as their food supply. As with the Type I devices, the remaining liquid waste is then treated via contact with chlorine tablets, UV disinfection, or other disinfection methods. Overall, Type II devices can achieve better treatment levels than Type I devices because of the biological component of the system, as opposed to maceration.

Type III MSDs are holding tanks that do not treat sewage onboard the vessel. These devices are designed to store sewage effluent while preventing overboard discharge.

 

Type I Flow-through treatment devices that commonly use maceration and disinfection for the treatment of sewage May be installed only on vessels less than or equal to 65 feet in length

Must produce an effluent with:

  • No visible floating solids
  • A fecal coliform bacterial count not greater than 1000 per 100 milliliters
Type II Flow-through treatment devices that may employ biological treatment and disinfection (some Type II MSDs may use maceration and disinfection) May be installed on vessels of any length

Must produce an effluent with:

  • A fecal coliform bacterial count not greater than 200 per 100 milliliters
  • No more than 150 milligrams of total suspended solids per liter
Type III Typically a holding tank where sewage is stored until it can be discharged shore-side or at sea (beyond three miles from shore) May be installed on vessels of any length No performance standard; must “be designed to prevent the overboard discharge of treated or untreated sewage or any waste derived from sewage.” 33 CFR 159.53(c) (PDF)(2 pp, 163 K)).
