      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 ...
    • Regional, Synchronous Field Determination of Summertime Stream Temperatures in Western Washington 

      Booth, Derek (University of Washignton Water Center, 2001)
      Cold-water fisheries can be strongly affected by elevated summertime stream temperatures. The determinants of stream temperature are relatively well understood in the abstract, but their quantification in any given watershed ...
