CORMIX is a USEPA-supported mixing zone model and decision support system for environmental impact assessment of regulatory mixing zones resulting from continuous point source discharges. The system emphasizes the role of boundary interaction to predict steady-state mixing behavior and plume geometry.
The CORMIX methodology contains systems to model single-port, multiport diffuser discharges and surface discharge sources. Effluents considered may be conservative, non-conservative, heated, brine discharges or contain suspended sediments. Advanced information systems provide documented water quality modeling, NPDES regulatory decision support, visualization of regulatory mixing zones, and tools for outfall specification and design.
