Sea outfalls

Sea outfalls

One consequence of increasing urban development is ever larger volumes of effluent being released into the sea from wastewater treatment plants. Outfalls must be designed to ensure that effluent is dispersed and diluted without any harmful effects on water quality and the environment. Artelia has carried out numerous studies and supervised the construction of numerous sea outfalls, and possesses tried and tested modelling tools and solid experience in designing and locating such structures.
