Abstract

Wastewater concentration dynamics during joint operation of several submarine outfalls V. ~ n d r o ~ e c ' & G. ~ o n ~ a r ~ Faculty of Civil Engineering,, University of Zagreb, Croatia. Abstract It is a frequent case that larger coastal towns have several wastewater submarine outfalls in relatively close vicinity. Thus, it happens that acceptable wastewater concentrations at a particular outfall affect the concentrations in the vicinity of another outfall and may change them considerably. Ths refers in particular to the situations where the action of sea currents is present. Theoretically, linear superimposition in the spatial and temporal sense can be assumed. In this work an attempt was made to determine it by means of a physical model. On a distorted physical eco-hydraulic model the discharge of wastewater during parallel operation of three outfalls of different capacity and length designed for implementation within the framework of Split MEIP (Municipal Environmental Infrastructure) was
