(4) to diminish the concentration by mixing one mass with another. For example, the mixing of one flow of water with another flow to obtain a flow with intermediate aqueous concentration. This process is used to reduce the concentration of metals or other potentially harmful contaminants in the more concentrated flow. Dispersion mechanisms include turbulent flow in a river or a creek, or currents and wind generated mixing in lakes.
Usually refers to the mixing of contaminated water through mechanical dispersion and molecular diffusion (due to chemical gradients).

The legal doctrine of dilution, recognized in the statutes or case law of 31 states, applies to marks which are highly similar or identical to strong, well-known trademarks. The doctrine stipulates that the use of a famous trademark by any party other than its owner will result in loss of the mark's distinctiveness - even when the goods or services are not related and there is no likelihood of confusion. Some names may be judged to be available because they are already diluted; not, that is, the name is in use by a number of different companies which may or may not include a famous user.
