Rivers and wastewater discharges flowing into lakes and coastal waters strongly affect aquatic ecosystems, basedon their transport of turbulence, tracers and sediment particles. Mixing and spreading of outflows have an evengreater impact when the receiving site is obstructed by vegetation canopies or mussel cultivation farms. Thus,a thorough knowledge of the interaction between effluents and receiving bodies is required to mitigate impactsand promote best environmental management practices, also following the 2015 EU Marine Strategy FrameworkDirective.
