Abstract:

A dye tracer study was conducted in the Weymouth Fore River, Quincy, Massachusetts for the purpose of determining the time required to remove or reduce to permissible concentrations any contaminating material released as a point source in the river. The test consisted of releasing a quantity of Rhodamine-B dye into the water and monitoring the dilution and dispersion of the dye by continuous fluorometric analysis of the water and by aerial photographs of the dye patch. Results of the test are compared with theoretical flushing times computed previously.
