Sacramento River Outfall Discharges

Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant
Sacramento, CA

Flow Science performed a detailed computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling analysis to evaluate the discharge of possible chlorine excursions in the effluent. Preliminary work with steady state flows showed an accurate reproduction of mixing patterns determined in prior dye release field studies. The modeling was then employed to determine the concentration and extent of possible transport of chlorine discharges to the river.
