Abstract:

A comprehensive fixed-bed model of the James River estuary and its tributaries, which correctly reproduced tides, currents, and salinities, was used to determine the dispersion characteristics and areas of influence of sewage effluent from three proposed locations for a sub-aqueous outfall for the Warwick River treatment plant. The outfall locations tested were 3,800 ft, 8,000 ft, and 12,000 ft from shore, and effluent discharge rates equivalent to 5 million gallons per day mgd and 15 mgd were tested at each outfall location.
