Abstract:

During the past several years, the need for knowledge regarding the pollution-recovery capacity of the New York Harbor system has become more pressing. The model tests reported herein were undertaken to obtain data necessary to establish the dispersion characteristics of effluents discharged from several of the major sewage treatment plants contributing to pollution in New York Harbor. The tests were accomplished by injecting conservative fluorescent dyes into the model to represent the sanitary or other waste being studied, then sampling to determine the dispersion of the dye. The report merely presents the test data in terms of dye concentration with respect to time no attempt is made herein to convert the concentrations of conservative dye observed in the model to equivalent concentrations of the nonconservative wastes of the prototype.
