Flow Science has an extensive background in the engineering applications of turbulent mixing and dispersion theory to the analysis and design of diffuser systems to meet NPDES standards, both in the coastal ocean, estuaries and rivers.  We typically use a combination of mixing theory and computer modeling to fully characterize the discharge and resultant dispersion patterns.  We also have extensive field experience, including the use of state-of-the-art Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry technology (ICP-MS) to perform dilution field studies.

Our project experience has ranged from offshore thermal discharges at nuclear generating stations to small scale wastewater treatment plant discharges in tidally- influenced river systems.  Specific discharge examples involve flows from 6,500 gpm to 840,000 gpm.

These same principles have been applied to desalination plants, brine disposal and salt pond remediation.
