  • Description:
    Recent legislation relating to water quality standards has seriously affected the dredging industry, particularly the normal methods of spoil disposal. Settling basin effluents must meet the required standards, necessitating the development of improved basin operation and design. In this study, settling tank theory and tracer testing techniques were used to compare a plain pipe inlet, various baffled inlet designs, and a reaction-jet inlet in a model spoil basin. Methods were developed to use the dye tracing technique with the tank effluent being recycled.
