Abstract
Liquid collected in the bilge spaces of four different classes of CF ships were sampled and analyzed for pH and the content of hydrocarbons and various metals. The results were compared to acceptable water quality criteria for waste disposal via municipal sewer. Significant failure rates (> 10%) were observed for pH, hydrocarbon content and concentrations of copper and zinc. These results are comparable to previous studies of bilge water content on Canadian and American military vessels.
