May Creek Sediment Transport Study

The May Creek Sediment Transport Study involved installing equipment in the ravine reach of May Creek to monitor and collect data on stream flows and transport of sediments between 148th Avenue SE and Coal Creek Parkway, and then analyzing this data to establish the flow at which erosion is likely.  The results of this study were used in the May Creek Erosion Stabilization Draft Report, which summarizes monitoring and evaluation efforts and describes the geomorphic, hydrologic, and hydraulic conditions and the implications of these conditions on sediment transport and bank erosion.

This report was prepared for King County by Anchor QEA, LLC of Bellingham, Washington for King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks.
