The effects of possible modifcations to the Vancouver Lake-Columbia River system on the hydraulic characteristics of that system were tested in a physical hydraulic model. A mathematical model was developed for predictive analysis and to expand the results of the hydraulic model study. Alternate methods for improving flushing action through Vancouver Lake by use of a conduit were investigated. The tests were conducted to determine the hydraulic characteristics and the flushing efficiency of pollutants by using a fluorescent dye to simulate the soluble conservative pollutants in the prototype. In addition, the hydraulic model study provides information on the dispersion, mixing, dilution rates and detention times which are important factors influencing water quality.
