Guapo Bay Thermal Discharge, Trinidad & Tobago
Smith Warner International (SWI) was contracted by Ecoengineering Consultants Ltd to investigate the impacts of discharging of cooling water into Guapo Bay by a proposed UREA-Ammonia- Nitrate (UAN) complex.
In order to evaluate these impacts, a combination of field measurements and computer modeling was undertaken. Environmental surveys included the following:
- Bathymetric survey of the surrounding area
- Tidal and current measurements within Guapo Bay
- Temperature measurements within Guapo Bay
