About this book

The ocean is the ultimate sink for all liquid waste and has for many years been the recipient of both treated and untreated sewage waste. This book offers a comprehensive study on the subject of ocean disposal of these effluents. The early chapters cover the philosophy of outfall design, properties of sewage from developed towns and an overview of water quality regulations in New Zealand, Great Britain and the U.S. Alternative ways of satisfying these regulations are discussed. The book also provides information required to design outfall pipelines and diffusers. The methods of calculating the initial dilution and the investigations necessary to compute the further dispersion of the effluent are discussed. A brief discussion of the problems of salt water intrusion, of outfall construction and post construction monitoring is presented at the end of the book.

... an invaluable resource for researchers, designers, teachers and students ... The reader is treated to an interesting set of discussions and examples from sources in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States and elsewhere. This international flavour is refreshing and is sustained throughout the book ... a comprehensive set of references ... which will be invaluable to researchers in this field. Gregory Lawrence Univ.
