Adaptative management in desalination plant outfall
The project has two phases: (1) to design and to adapt the instrumental system to the characteristics of the brine plume, achieving the required reliability and precision. (2) An information and forecast system has also been constructed to compile a Decision support System that achieves the outfall adaptative management. The application of forecast systems will provide the outfall management with the necessary flexibility to adapt to the favorable conditions of the marine environment, maximising dilution and minimising brine impact. Next October, the Project will organize, as a diffusion activity, an international symposium about 'Technological Advances in the Design and Control of Brine Discharges Into the Sea'. Inscriptions are open.
