Effective treatment and disposal of municipal wastewater is required for the protection of public health and of the environment.
Mixing zone analysis is an essential component of predicting flow behavior and pollutant assimilation.
Regulatory mixing zones may occur in the near-field or in the far-field after boundary interaction occurs.
In many areas, coastal discharge of wastewater with only primary or advanced primary treatment is considered the best available technology.
Design and Modeling of Ocean Wastewater Disposal Systems
Proper outfall siting and design is required for efficient wastewater treatment by utilization of the natural assimilative capacity of
Designs which used ambient density stratification trap flow in internal density current layers may be particularly advisable to avoid mixing zones with both high nutrients and available light.
The CORMIX v12.0GT advanced tools CorSens, CorVue, and CorSpy can assist the analyst in outfall design specification.
