Abstract:

An existing comprehensive fixed-bed model of the Grays Harbor Estuary was used to evaluate the flushing characteristics of three proposed revision plans to the existing Westport Small-Boat Basin. Model tests were conducted to determine current velocities in the two exits for base conditions and plan 1, surface current patterns for base conditions and plans 1 and 3, and flushing characteristics for base conditions and plans 1-3. Each plan improved flushing with plan 3 being the most effective.
