Comprehensive oceanographic baseline study at barceloneta puerto rico

Comprehensive oceanographic baseline study at barceloneta puerto rico

Journal Water Pollution Control Federation 49(4): 558-567

An interdisciplinary baseline study was conducted at an open ocean site on the north coast of Puerto Rico to provide discharge data in the vicinity of an ocean outfall. A sampling network of 27 water chemistry stations and 15 benthos/plankton stations was used to characterize the ocean water and sediment and to define the influence of the nearby Manati River. It was found that the Manati River, which presently receives the discharge of essentially raw domestic and industrial wastewater, was probably the source of most of the coliforms, turbidity, nitrates, nitrites, phosphorus and silica in the study area waters. The river may also be the origin of As, Be, Cr and Zn.
