Budd Inlet/Capitol Lake/Deschutes River Total Daily Maximum Load Study Model Review
Budd Inlet/Capitol Lake/Deschutes River Total Daily Maximum Load Study Model Review (Number of pages: 175) (Publication Size: 2618KB)
|Author(s)||The Cadmus Group, Inc. and Scott Wells & Associates for EPA Region 10|
|Description||The goal of this project was to provide an external peer review of the Generalized Environmental Modeling System for Surface Waters (GEMSS) water quality and hydrodynamic models used for the TMDL study for Budd Inlet, Capitol Lake, and the Deschutes River. The purpose of this review was to provide guidance on how the model application may be improved in the future. If the suggestions presented in this review were implemented in the modeling study, the management conclusions from the present modeling study may not change. Hence, these suggestions are presented to focus on directions for later improvement in the model’s ability to represent existing field data.
|NOTES||Added second peer review and forward to document|
