About this book

In many locations around the world, wastewater facilities that diffuse into the sea are seen to be the best treatment option. However the successful implementation of this strategy requires an even better understanding of the underlying science and engineering. The 36 articles in these proceedings have been selected from those presented at a highly successful conference that considered the latest developments in the planning, construction and operation of marine disposal systems. Particular interest was focused on the need to meet increasingly restrictive discharge standards while keeping operational costs at levels affordable in the local economic circumstances. Papers included cover: marine disposal policies; water quality standards and bacteriological indicators; oceanographic and environmental impact studies; and the modelling, design, construction, operation and monitoring of marine disposal systems.


Marine Disposal Policies. Science, technology and willingness to pay in ocean disposal of wastes: America's misplaced search for equity. An introduction case study of Los Angeles (W.F. Garber, C.G. Gunnerson). Water Quality Standards, Bacteriological Indicators. Bacterial die-away rates in Red Sea waters (H.Z. Sarikaya, A.M. Saatci). Application of the EU Bathing Water Directive to the design of marine sewage disposal systems (D.G. Christoulas, A.D. Andreadakis). Oceanographic Studies. Application of remote sensing technology to the relation of submarine pipelines and coastal morphology (Y. Yuksel et al. ). Environmental Impact Studies. Dredged material of Izmir Harbor: its behaviour and pollution potential (A. Filibeli et al. ). Modelling of Effluent Disposal Systems. Some environmental aspects of marine disposal systems with particular reference to UK waters (Y. Kaya). A simplified model for thermal discharges (I. Ozturk et al. ). Design, Construction and Operation of Marine Disposal Systems. Design and construction problems of a "big inch" outfall (C. Avanzini, P. Quirici). Review of marine outfall systems in Taiwan (L. Yang). Monitoring of Marine Disposal Systems. Monitoring of sewage outfalls in Northern Spain: preliminary studies of benthic communities (J.A. Juanes, J.C. Canteras).
