Turkey: New Rules for Sailboats . . .

Hello,
The french sail forum to which I participate too is very concerned about the existence (or not) of new rules for the Bodrum/Fethié aerea . It looks like the presence of black and grey water tanks could be now controlled . Has anybpdy heard something about this ? .
Thanks
Jacques

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Jacques.

Yes new regulations are coming into force, March 2010, in Turkey regarding black and grey water discharge.

See ➥ Noonsite: Turkey: New Rules for Cruising Yachts in the Mugla Area (Bodrum to Fethiye)

And ➥ http://www.turmepa.org.tr/en/haberle...emBasladi.html

Thanks,
The fact is I know the text on Noonsite. But it is not easy to understand whether we will need two water - tanks (black + grey) . Installing a black water tank is one thing. Connecting all the other evacuations systems (shower, kitchen...) with it, is another thing quite difficult on a small boat (37') . New boats do not have this connected system but only a black waste water tank. So, what so we have to do ?

No - you'll only need a single tank; in which, both black & grey water will be stored for legal pump-out.

Upon inspection of a foreign flagged boat, authorities will only ask to see the Blue Card, and will check to see legal waste disposal has been made. If the boat has been sailing for a period of time and there is no discharge recorded, there will be a penalty charged ..."

Yes, the name is "Electro Scan". It costs about 1500 € in France ans it is not sure that it is conform to the new reglementation in certain countries.

You are supposed to hold your bilge water? So much for visiting that country.

To clear things up a bit here, a LectraSan unit is a waste treatement device that uses DC current to separate the sodium ions from the chlorine ions in salt water. The waste goes in the chlorine ion side where it is macerated, sterilized with chlorine ions and then pumped over the side.

LectraSan®

Hello,
As i Know, Lectra San or Electra Scan system are quite the same. Are this kind of system authorized in the US instead of (to replace) holding tanks ?
Thanks

No - Electra San is not a legal substitute for holding tanks in the USA. Although the unit has a miniscule holding tank as part of it. You also need a "locking" device on any overboard "Y-valve" system that would allow waste to be discharged through a thru-hull valve. Grey water and bilge for recreational vessels is not regulated - yet.
- - In "no-discharge" zones you may not discharge anything from a MSD or holding tank and in some places like Catalina Island the Rangers board your boat to inspect your "locking device" and then drop a florescent tablet into your MSD and flush it into the holding tank. During their daily rounds of the anchorage if they see any dye outside your vessel you will be fined.
