Sediment sources in an urbanizing , mixed land-use watershed

  title={Sediment sources in an urbanizing , mixed land-use watershed},
  author={Erin J. Nelson and Derek B. Booth},
The Issaquah Creek watershed is a rapidly urbanizing watershed of 144 km in western Washington, where sediment aggradation of the main channel and delivery of fine sediment into a large downstream lake have raised increasingly frequent concerns over flooding, loss of fish habitat, and degraded water quality. A watershed-scale sediment budget was evaluated to determine the relative effects of land-use practices, including urbanization, on sediment supply and delivery, and to guide management… CONTINUE READING
