(c) Any existing vessel equipped with a marine sanitation device which is certified by the Coast Guard as being capable of providing a degree of treatment which (1) under the conditions of the certification program to be established by the Coast Guard, will reduce fecal coliform bacteria to no more than 1,000 per 100 milliliters and prevent the discharge of an effluent with visible floating solids; and (2) is installed on or before the date of initial promulgation of implementing Coast Guard regulations under section 13 (b) (1) of the Act, or within 3 years after the time of promulgation, shall not be required to comply with paragraph (a) of this section.

(d) Any existing vessel equipped with a marine sanitation device certified as provided in paragraph (c) of this section which is installed after 3 years from the date of initial promulgation of implementing Coast Guard regulations under section 13(b) (1) of the Act, but before the effective date of paragraph (a) of this section with respect to existing vessels, shall not be required to comply with paragraph (a) of this section for 3 years following such effective date: Provided, That the device remains operable.
(e) The degree of treatment described in paragraph (c) of this section is an "appropriate standard” for purposes of Coast Guard and Department of Defense certification pursuant to section 13(g) (2) of the Act.
(f) This section is not to be construed to accelerate the effective date of section 13(g) (1) of the Act. 8 140.4 Complete prohibition.
A State may make a written application to the Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency, for the issuance of a regulation completely prohibiting discharge from a vessel of any sewage (whether treated or not) into particular
waters of the State, or specified portions thereof, where such waters constitute navigable waters of the United States, Such application shall specify with par. ticularity the waters, or portions thereof, for which a complete prohibition is desired. The application shall also demonstrate that a complete prohibition is required by applicable water quality standards; and in this connection the application shall include: (a) A statement of the applicable water quality standards; and (b) justification for the belief that the discharge of sewage from vessels may contribute to a violation of water quality standards in the waters or portions thereof which are the subject of the application. If, on the basis of the State's application and any other information available to him, the Administrator is unable to make a finding that applicable water quality standards require a complete prohibition of any discharge in the waters or portions thereof covered by the application, he shall state the reasons why he cannot make such a finding, and shall deny the application. If the Administrator makes a finding that applicable water quality standards require a complete prohibition of any discharge in all or any part of the waters or portions thereof covered by the State's application, he shall publish such finding together with a notice of proposed rule making, and then shall proceed in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553. If the Administrator's finding is that applicable water quality standards require a complete prohibition covering a more restricted or more expanded area than that applied for by the State, he shall state the reasons why his finding differs in scope from that requested in the State's application. No regulation under this section shall be issued to take effect sooner than the effective date of the initial standards and regulations issued under section 13(b) (1) of the Act. & 140.5 Analytical procedures.
In determining the composition and quality of effluent discharged from marine sanitation devices the procedures contained in the current “Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater," or subsequent revisions or amendments thereto, shall be employed.
