  The database can be accessed from a main switchboard,
from which different menus and forms can be opened for
browsing and printing (see below) or exporting data.
4 Effluent Categories and Parameters form

  The form provides two drop-down fields: one for selecting an
effluent category (e.g. biocides) and another for choosing a parameter from this category (e.g. chlorine).
  The fields 'description' and 'chemical symbol' provide further information on the parameter chosen.
  Reported discharge concentrations from desalination plants
can be viewed for the selected parameter.
  Toxicological data may also be accessed for the selected
parameter by opening a second form.
4 Printing form

From this form, a report can be chosen for printing:
Parameter List: Provides a brief description of the
parameter, a chemical symbol or reaction.
Dosing and Discharge Data: Provides dosing
concentrations but also effluent or environmental data.
Toxicological and Impact Data: Provides acute and
chronic toxicity data, biodegradation rates, water quality
standards and results from desalination-related
environmental impact studies.
