This paper presents the procedures and results from an investigation to evaluate the hydraulic characteristics of mudflow events resulting from hypothetical failures of a debris blockage dam near Mount St. Helens, WA. The study purpose is to determine the most likely breaching and bulking scenarios, and then to develop procedures for routing the resulting mudflows to the Corps of Engineers' (COE) Sediment Retention Structure (SRS) which is 16 miles downstream.
