Wastes discharged into surface water, sometimes considered to be water pollution. In physics/nuclear physics, Effluent is the radioactive waste released from a factory or nuclear plant. In earth sciences, the term refers to a stream that flows out of another body of water. For example, the Mississippi River’s effluent of fresh water is between 200, 000 to 709, 000 ft3, making a plume of fresh water detectable from space.
