Lake Whatcom TMDL Model - Partial Rollback Scenarios
Acrobat PDF format (Number of pages: 16) (Publication Size: 204KB)
|Description||This technical memorandum summarizes work CDM performed under Washington State
Department of Ecology (WDOE) Contract No. C0800239 with the Washington State
Department of Ecology. This work includes five scenario simulations using the calibrated
Lake Whatcom HSPF model for full build out and natural land use conditions (Cadmus &
CDM, November 2007) and the original model for Existing conditions (Cadmus & CDM, July
2007). The five scenarios are based on a reduction of land use classes from the Existing and
Full Build Out scenarios. The additional scenarios were used to develop estimates of the
Total Phosphorus loading into Lake Whatcom and as inputs into WDOE’s Lake Whatcom CEQUAL-
W2 lake model. A primary objective for running these additional scenarios in the
HSPF model were to show what additional burden must be placed on existing development
to accommodate future development.
