Abstract: This paper presents a framework with examples for understanding the fate and transport of cooling system discharges into estuaries through the use of modeling. The modeling of biofouling control agents and their by-products in the ambient waters provides a critical component of the overall assessment to determine the potential hazard or risk to the environment and man from discharges.
