Abstract : As part of the study on the Duwamish River Navigation Improvement Project, this literature search was performed to compile and review all existing information and ongoing research on lands and natural resources that may be affected during the widening and deepening of the Duwamish Waterway. The area of interest included Seattle Harbor, Elliott Bay, the Duwamish River and Waterway, and the Duwamish-Green River system to Howard A. Hanson Dam. Major information topics covered in the literature search include land use and development plans in the Lower Duwamish River and Seattle Harbor and water quality and aquatic resources upstream to Howard A. Hanson Dam. Coordination with Federal, state and local government agencies allowed access to existing libraries and bibliographies on the study area. Unpublished information on file was accessed when available and current research activities were surveyed. City, University, and consultants' libraries were other major sources of literature.
