A Marina Model of Continuous Loads and Equilibrium

by Kenneth L. Echternacht, Florida Dep of Environmental, Regulation, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


For projects requiring dredge and fill permits from the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation (FDER) the impact on water quality is one of the primary areas of concern which must be addressed. This paper deals entirely with methods used to assess the impact of proposed marina projects on coastal waters. The first part discusses the physical processes controlling water quality and part two the methods used to predict water quality. Part three presents a model technique which can be used to extend and improve presently used methods.
