Abstract: Description of sediment deposition in Lake Barcroft near Washington, D C, where 19-acre-ft of sediment has been deposited for each square mile of completed residential construction; factors affecting sedimentology processes in areas under urbanization are found to be similar to, but more difficult to evaluate, than those applying to rural conditions.
