Abstract: Port Ludlow Bay is a tidal estuary located adjacent to Admiralty Inlet in Puget Sound, Washington. A planned development has been under construction along the bay since 1976. A 0.64 mgd activated sludge plant and a stormwater control system of wet ponds with swales have been constructed. This paper summarizes selected data obtained from seawater sampling, from sediment sampling and from runoff sampling in the Port Ludlow area.
