EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AD39 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Uniform National Discharge Standards for Vessels of the Armed Forces--Phase II 
Abstract: In 1996 the Clean Water Act was amended to create section 312(n), "Uniform National Discharge Standards (UNDS) for Vessels of the Armed Forces." Section 312(n) directs EPA and DOD to establish national discharge standards for discharges incidental to the normal operation of a vessel of the Armed Forces. These national standards will preempt State discharge standards for these vessels. EPA and DOD jointly promulgated Phase I of these regulations, 40 CFR part 1700, on May 10, 1999 (64 FR 25126). Phase I concluded that 25 out of 39 discharges from Armed Forces vessels would require EPA and DoD to jointly establish MPCB performance standards by regulation (Phase II) for which it is "reasonable and practicable" to require a "marine pollution control device." Some of these discharges have the potential to introduce oil or other organics into receiving waters (such as bilge water); some have the potential to introduce copper or other metals (such as hull coating leachate); and some have the potential to introduce aquatic nuisance species (such as ballast water).
