The intent of this project was to create a modular housing that could be used with standard bilge pumps to reduce oily discharges in Virginia waterways. In designing the housing the most important factor would be the total percentage of petroleum reduction that would be realized . However, in order to reap the benefits of the housings they would have to meet certain requirements in order for boat owners to install them in a significant number of vessels.
