Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) in St Paul, MhUlesota intends to
relocate the Empire Wastewater Treatment Plant outfall from the Vermillion River to a
location on the shipping chalUlel in the Mississippi River, near the upstream end of
Spring Lake (Figure 1.1). A study is being conducted to provide information on the
mixing of the effluent with the flow of the Mississippi River, and to provide support for
the siting and orientation of the outfall pipe. The results are based on an analysis using
the HCORMIX expert system" for evaluation of mixing.
