Over the past several decades the nation has undertaken a massive program of improving its water resources. While this program has many facets, one of its major aspects has been to improve and upgrade the collection and treatment of sanitary sewage. Much of this upgrading has been done in an effort to minimize the environmental impact of the treatment plant effluent. A case in point occurs along the western edge of San Pablo Bay just north of San Francisco. As a result of this work the following conclusions have been drawn. First, that two dimensional description of the west side of San Pablo Bay is adequate and there is no evidence that a three dimensional model is required. Also, it is apparent that a one dimensional model would be inadequate to describe the dynamic and spatial variability of this area.
