A coordinated program is described for developing information needed for designing a condenser cooling water system for a nuclear power plant located on a large estuary to meet State water quality standards and minimize any adverse effects on aquatic life. The paper discusses estuarine conditions pertinent to the design of the intake and discharge structures, the heat assimilative capacity of the estuary, application of the momentum jet theory to the condenser cooling water discharges, and hydraulic model investigations to determine mixing and dispersion patterns.
