Siting the New Boston Outfall: Near-Field Considerations

by Jonathan A. French, Camp Dresser & McKee Int, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


This paper describes a procedure applied in near-field considerations for siting the new outfall to serve the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority's (MWRA) proposed regional treatment plant for the metropolitan Boston area. The procedure is used to predict a degree of compliance with initial-dilution criteria that specify not only a concentration, but also the frequency with which that concentration may be exceeded.
