Pollution Abatement in Regions M-4 through M-9


Sinclair Refinery at Corpus Christi empties wastes into a cove adjoining the Nueces Bay harbor. The sulfide concentration, retained in the separated water at the outfall entering the bay, is toxic and detrimental to aquatic life. However, the cove is of little biological value. The water draining from the cove into the harbor has a toxic concentration of sulfides present, but the dilution is so great that there may be no immediate damage to aquatic life.
