Information derived from data collected in the ocean environment near the city of San Diego wastewater outfall included variance and time series analyses to discern physical, chemical, and biological changes and population trend and composition of biota. The results indicated that (a) the outfall performed effectively in diffusing wastes to the environment, (b) the environment was gradually reaching an equilibrium state, (c) the marine ecosystem was relatively stable in both planktonic and benthic composition, and (d) the benthic populations were stimulated by the waste discharge and the deposit of organic matter.
