Abstract

The fly ash discharge from Tuticorin thermal power station caused various changes in the hydrographic parameters of Tuticorin Bay water. The studies conducted during 1999 indicated that, the fly ash discharge did not conspicuously affected the temperature, salinity arid pH of the bay water, as there was no marked variation in these parameters among the five stations studied. While, the low dissolved oxygen content of the bay water coupled with the high turbidity might have attributed the cause for the moderate net productivity of the Bay water.
