The report describes the behavior of plumes generated when wastewater is discharged at depth into waters of greater density. Volume I contains analytical solutions and descriptions of five mathematical models that provide the initial dilution and rise-height of the plume for a variety of discharge, diffuser, and receiving water characteristics. Initial dilution is defined as the flux-average dilution when the rising plume reaches an equilibrium level or encounters the surface. Guidance is provided for the range of values within which analytical solutions provide acceptable estimates. The format of model input data is the same for all five computer programs.
