What is Oily Bilge Water? 

Bilge water is the mixture of water, oily fluids, lubricants, cleaning fluids, and other similar wastes that accumulate in the lowest part of a vessel from a variety of different sources including the main and auxiliary engines; boilers, evaporators and related auxiliary systems; equipment and related components; and other mechanical and operational sources found throughout the machinery spaces of a vessel.  It is not uncommon on ships for oil or water to leak into the bilge from these sources, various seals, gaskets, fittings, piping, connections, and from related maintenance and activities associated with these systems. These leaks, along with onboard spills, wash waters generated during the daily operation of a vessel, and waste water from operational sources (e.g., condensate from air coolers, etc.), collect in the bilge.
