The report gives results of an evaluation of the performance of a dechlorination system that uses SO2 to remove residual oxidants from chlorinated sea water in a power plant cooling system. Samples of unchlorinated, chlorinated, and dechlorinated cooling water were obtained at Pacific Gas and Electric's Potrero power plant in San Francisco. The samples were collected during 28 sampling periods--14 at flood tide and 14 at ebb tide--and analyzed for several chemical and physical constituents. An amperometric titrator was used for field analysis of total oxidant residual (TOR) and free oxidant residual (FOR). Analytical results, plant operating data, and laboratory experiments were used to evaluate the dechlorination system. Major conclusions include: (1) the dechlorination system studied showed effective removal of residual oxidants from chlorinated sea water used in the power plant cooling system; (2) the dechlorination system proved reliable (no measurable oxidant residual was found at the effluent outfall); and (3) due to the effectiveness of the dechlorination system in removing all measurable oxidant residual, average and maximum levels of dechlorination cannot be determined.
