Update on Chesapeake Bay Model Upgrade Projects
Better spatial scale to simulate water quality responses to management efforts at a local scale.
Better simulation of algal species and their impacts on water quality.
Sediment and pH-alkalinity dynamics critical to the Potomac and Anacostia will be modeled.
Chesapeake Bay Upgrade
Sediment types and physical processes affecting sediment loads will be incorporated.
Water quality responses to sediment control actions will be more accurately reflected.
Improved sediment controls may reduce the need for WWTP upgrades.Project Description
