STUDY OF CURRENTS AND BRINE DISPERSION FROM WASTEWATER FOR THE LIMA SOUTH PLANT (PERU)
- Place: Lima (Peru)
- Scope: Detailed study
A study was done to simulate the Lima desalination plant outfall. The wastewater is actually a mix of treatment plant and desalination plant outfall with hypersaline end outfall behaviour.
Included was a near field study using brIHne which was combined with the MOHID model.
The characteristics of the final model implemented are:
• 3D to 14 layers
• Three nested meshes up to a resolution of 10 m.
• Agent modeling: wind, tide and Humboldt current.
