Action C.15: Impact of Reverse Osmosis discharges on the marine environment
This action shall focus on the development of a monitoring program with the scope of understanding the impacts of brine being discharged into the marine environment. The sampling programme shall cover a period of two years to ensure that the
sampling program captures any seasonal variations in the quantity of brine being discharged into the marine environment and due consideration is given to the changing hydrodynamic conditions and their effect on brine and seawater mixing.
The expected result of this action is an increased understanding on the impacts of reverse osmosis brine discharge on the marine environment.
Specifically this action shall produce a report highlighting the results of the impact assessment carried out as part of this action.
