When many desalination plants are operated closely together along coastal areas, the continuous brine discharges through marine outfall systems from these cluster plants can have a significant impact on the coastal marine environment. The potential impact can be minimized and regulated by treatment and recycling technologies, by limiting the concentration values of brine at the discharge point and also by imposing concentration values within a prescribed circular mixing zone in the coastal waters via the outfall design.
