  • Booth, Derek B.; Visitacion, Bernadette J.; Steinemann, Anne C. (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-01)
    This fact sheet covers stormwater management. The Puget Sound region is analyzed as a case study. The various types of costs are described: flooding and property damage, degradation of water quality, and loss of habitat. ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Booth, Derek B.; Leavitt, Jennifer; Peterson, Kim (University of Washington Water Center, 1996)
    Our study of permeable pavements has evolved from a growing recognition of the limitations of traditional stormwater management. To keep water in the soil we must allow access of water to that soil across much of the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Water Center, 1991)
    This paper describes the causes and effects of urban-induced changes to the hydrology of a drainage basin. To understand the cause of change, the hydrologic behavior of the undisturbed basin first will be explained. The ...
