Tests of surface instream aerators and of bottom diffuser aerators were conducted on the Delaware River near Philadelphia in order to determine the practicability of induced oxygenation of deep navigable rivers. The diffuser was tested at various depths up to 38 feet, but its performance in pounds of oxygen per horsepower hour decreased markedly in the deeper water. Performance of the surface aerator appeared to be somewhat improved over results previously found in a shallower river. Cost estimates and systems analysis led to the conclusion that induced oxygenation by aerators appears to constitute an economical alternative to advanced waste treatment on the Delaware River. This would require structurally reinforced surface aerators in some areas, and bottom diffuser aerators where the surface aerators would interfere with navigation. However, oxygen diffusers developed by others may provide an even more economical means of induced oxygenation for such rivers. (Author)
