Article or Chapter TitleImpact of a Desalination Plant on the Physical and Chemical Properties of Sea Water, Bahrain
Record Number10205
Journal or Book TitleWater Resources
Primary author or editorAltayaran, Ahmad M.; Madany, Ismail M.;
Description"The impact of effluent from the Sitra power and desalination plant (SPDP), Bahrain, on the physical and chemical properties of the receiving water was investigated. Two distinguished zones of the receiving water were recognized. These zones resulted from the presence of the jetty. The length of the first zone is about the same as the jetty, 70 m. The length of the second zone extends to about 150 m. Seventy five case stations were selected on the receiving water. On the intake side, fifteen stations were considered as control stations. The SPDP effluent significantly changed the temperature and salinity of the receiving water of the first zone. The dissolved oxygen levels vary slightly from the control stations. The jetty was found to restrict the water circulation of the first zone. This restriction caused a delay in the temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen dispersion. Beyond the first zone, this restriction is removed and the dispersion process affected the control stations."--Title page
