Since autumn of 2010 in the north-eastern part of Poland underground gas stores are under construction by diluting salt deposits. A by-product of the technology applied is brine, which is discharged into the coastal waters of the Puck Bay (south Baltic Sea). In the pre-investment study a theoretical analysis of the mixing conditions in the near-field and far-field of the proposed installation was conducted. An extensive monitoring programme carried out since 2010 shows a good mixing of brine with the surrounding waters. Excess salinity due to the continuous discharge of brine estimated using data measured in situ is generally lower than permitted, i.e. not exceeding 0.5 psu in the near-field of installation.
