Assessment of U.S. Corps Aerators in the San Joaquin River for the Port of Stockton

September 2004

Goals objectives

Goals/Objectives

  • Determine the current level of performance of both aerators

  • Estimate the oxygen loads from the aerators and the oxygen transfer efficiency

  • Compare aerator performance to release of oxygen gas from jets and different aerator device (Biox Hose)

Measurement efforts

Measurement Efforts

  • Measurements in Front of North Jets while Operating Both Aerators

  • Measurements in Front of South Jets while using Oxygen Gas


Measurements and estimations

Measurements and Estimations

  • Measured Velocity and DO concentrations of upwelling and/or flow-away currents

  • Estimated flow-away or upwelling width and calculated flows

  • Estimated Oxygen Loads from upwelling or flow-away flows and DO pick-up (measured DO minus background DO)


Operation of both aerators

Operation of Both Aerators


Operation of south jets with pure oxygen gas

Operation of South Jets with Pure Oxygen Gas


Summary

Both Aerators

DO Pick-up of 0.78 mg/l (Back. DO = 3.2 mg/l)

Total Flow-away Flow of 90 cfs

Total Oxygen Supply Rate of 402 lbs/day (assuming 40 ft flow-away width)

South Jets with Oxygen

DO Pick-up of 2.19 mg/l (Back. DO = 2.9 mg/l)

Avg. Upwelling Flow of 191 cfs

Avg. Oxygen Supply Rate of 2270 lbs/day

Oxygen Transfer Efficiency of 45%
