Field and laboratory studies of the behavior of wastewater discharged from the San Francisco ocean outfall are reported. Wastefield behavior was predicted by the mathematical models RSB and ULINE; the closest predictions were those of RSB. The hydraulic model study reproduced the major features observed in the field. It also afforded considerable insight into the mechanics of mixing of multiport risers which could not have been obtained either from the field test or the mathematical models.
