The growth of population and insutry in the coastal regions of the country, along with increased use of coastal waters for disposal of wastes produced inland, presents the potential of new or increased pollution in a valuable national resource. In order to assure that marine water auality is maintained and enhanced for present and future water uses, each source of waste input must be evaluated for its impact on the environment. Treated wastes must be discharged in such a manner and location that the resulting concentrations and contact times do not violate the water quality requirements specified for the desired water uses. The disposal process can be designed within these constraints through a mix of at least four techniques: degree and type of waste treatment; site selection; outfall or barge distribution of wastes; barrier construction. The report presents a review of the literature pertinent to the theoretical development of present ocean outfall design technology as it applies to waste discharges in general.
