Description The annual mass of dissolved nitrate transported to the southern portion of Puget Sound by direct groundwater discharge was estimated to support the South Puget Sound Nutrient Model Study modeling effort. Data from the region south of the Tacoma Narrows was evaluated to delineate the area from which groundwater flows directly to Puget Sound. This "area of contribution" was subdivided into 19 individual recharge/discharge zones.
