  • Mazer, Greg (University of Washington Center for Urban Water Resources Management, 1998)
    Over 100 bioswales have been constructed in King County over the past ten years to treat runoff associated with residential, commercial and light industrial development. Water level fluctuation, long-term inundation, erosive ...
  • Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-09)
    For decades, watershed urbanization has been known to have severe consequences on aquatic systems. Although the problem has been long articulated, solutions have proven elusive because of the complexity of the problem, ...
  • Booth, Derek B.; Karr, James R.; Schauman, Sally; Konrad, Christopher P.; Morley, Sarah A.; Larson, Marit G.; Henshaw, Patricia C.; Nelson, Erin J.; Burges, Stephen J. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2001-03-30)
    Our goal in this project has been to develop a robust approach to urban stream rehabilitation, using examples from the Puget Lowland region of western Washington, that blends knowledge from the physical, biological, and ...
  • Colwell, Shanti; Horner, Richard R.; Booth, Derek B.; Gilvydis, Dalius (University of Washington Center for Urban Water Resources Management, 2000-07)
    Twenty years of research have demonstrated that the water quality of stormwater runoff can improve after flowing in a well-vegetated channel, relatively slowly, at a depth below the vegetation height. These channels are ...
  • Cammermayer, Jon W.; Horner, Richard R.; Chechowitz, Naomi (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-12)
    This study had three objectives and associated work components: Component 1 -- assess routine highway ditch cleaning alternatives ("Service Levels") for water quality benefits; Component 2—survey biofiltration swales to ...
  • Brueske, Christopher C. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-09-01)
    This paper provides a review of "ultra-urban" stormwater treatment technologies. "Ultra-urban" technologies are designed to remove pollutants from wet weather runoff in highly developed areas where land values are high ...
  • Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Hill, Kristina; Botsford, Erik; Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2003-03)
    Because of the profound effect of urban development on aquatic systems, characterizing the land cover of a region is critical for a variety of resource management applications. In the Pacific Northwest, this characterization ...
