A topographical display of water quality data was used to determine whether treated secondary effluent could continue to be discharged into the ambient waterways of Broward County, Fla. Using this method the authors rapidly assessed the factors most significantly affecting canal water quality without costly computer modeling. Continued discharge was found to be unsatisfactory; thus, the canals needed a viable means of effluent disposal. Recent research into the effects of ocean current on the extent of initial dilution of an effluent plume discharged into the ocean showed that the proper outfall-diffuser could achieve the required 500:1 initial dilution at a reasonable cost.
