Sewage Trapping by Water Parcels in Puget Sound
Sewage effluent entering Puget Sound, Washington, often becomes trapped in discrete parcels of water. The parcels are easily identifiable in vertical density profiles as layers of well-mixed...

Drift of Floatable Materials in Puget Sound
Cost-effective methods for predicting the fate of surface borne (floatable) materials and contaminants have been applied successfully within Puget Sound. Several preferred areas for the...

Rocky Habitat Mitigation Using Artificial Reefs in Puget Sound, Washington
In Puget Sound, Washington, artificial reefs are being studied to determine their potential to mitigate for man-caused degradation of rocky habitat. These studies demonstrate the biological...

Coastal Flood Control Facility Design Parameters
The development of design parameters for a storm runoff detention facility located on lowlands adjacent to an estuary and discharging into the tidal zone are discussed. The parameters...

Modeling Dilution of Wastewater Outfalls in a Tidal Estuary
Field studies and modeling have been conducted to assess initial dilution of wastewater outfalls in Puget Sound, a fjord-like estuary in the State of Washington. Recent numerical dilution...

Application of an Ecosystem/Water Quality Model as a Tool for Managing Estuarine Water Quality
A laterally averaged two-dimensional computer model was developed to simulate the hydrodynamics, transport, and ecosystem dynamics of Budd Inlet, a small partially mixed estuary located...

Measuring Water-Dependency: A Puget Sound Example
Fostering water-dependent industry through allocation of urban shoreline sites is an important coastal management goal. But water-dependency is an elusive term to define operationally....

Innovations in Dredged Material Disposal in Puget Sound
This study, known as the Puget Sound Dredged Disposal Analysis (PSDDA), is building on a strong history of federal/state cooperation within Washington which is unique in the United States....

Use of Sediment Bulk Chemistry Data for Dredged Disposal Management in Puget Sound
Although no fully scientific approach for setting and interpreting sediment chemical levels is currently available, an effects-based approach for using bulk chemistry data was evaluated...

The Washington State Public Access Program: Finding Solutions to the Shortcomings
This paper discusses the problems of providing adequate public access and focuses on many of the solutions which have been found and implemented in Washington State. In 1983, the Shorelands...

Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District Rehabilitation Program
The Yakima-Tieton Irrigation District obtained funding from the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation and the State of Washington to replace an open canal and lateral irrigation delivery system...

Measurements of Near-Survface Current in Inlets and Bays with Synthetic Aperture Radar
Synthetic Aperture Radar, SAR, provides images of land and ocean surfaces irrespective of solar illumination, and practically under all weather conditions. Developed originally for land...

The Relationship of Benefits to System Size for Irrigation Projects
This paper presents a generalized linear programming (LP) and farm budget model for optimization of on-farm irrigation benefits resulting from variations in irrigation project size. The...

Model Choice and Scale in Urban Drainage Design
This paper addresses the question of model choice and scale by comparing various model applications to a 95-acre gaged catchment, known as the Lake Hills watershed, in Bellevue, Washington....

Modeling Permissive Movements in TRANSYT-7F
Traffic Network Study Tool (TRANSYT-7F) is one of the most widely used traffic flow analysis and traffic signal timing optimization models in the United States and elsewhere. Through 'Release...

Use of a Schedule and Runcut Simulator
The development of a computer program which simulates the transit scheduling and runcutting processes is discussed. The program, called OCRS, was developed for the Multi-Corridor Project...

Rehabilitation of the SF Calawah River Bridge
The failure of a 4-span reinforced concrete bridge in Washington State initiated a study that ultimately led to a unique method of bridge rehabilitation. Severe scour resulted in settlement...

Port Facility Development: Public Access and Mitigation Requirements
Coordination of compatible uses and resolution of use conflicts requires continuous effort, extending beyond the planning and permit process and requiring long-range committment of staff...

Environmental Mitigation Techniques for Marina Development
The paper discusses a coastal design process entitled 'Design by Mitigation'. It describes a series of mitigation measures and techniques which can be used to...

Geomorphology, Convergent Margins and Earthquakes
Underthrusting along convergent plate margins, is commonly accompanied by the occurrence of shallow focus, large magnitude thrust earthquakes ( greater than magnitude 7. 5). In the subduction...
