CWRA Luncheon: Intermediate Field Mixing in the North Saskatchewan River
June 18, 2014, 12:00 NOON
Holiday Inn South, 1330 Pembina Highway
Mixing studies in the past have typically focused on near field where characteristics are three dimensional, transverse field (two dimensional) and longitudinal (one dimensional). The intermediate field may be considered to be the early part of the transverse mixing region and is critical for the initial dilution of wastewater effluent to meet government regulation criterion. This presentation will summarize the findings of a study that evaluated the intermediate field mixing characteristics of the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant effluent into the North Saskatchewan River at Edmonton.
