Summary
Abstract: The calibration of a model of flow, temperature, and water quality in the
Tualatin River, Oregon, originally calibrated for the summers of 1991 through
1993, was extended to the summers of 1991 through 1997. The model is now
calibrated for a total period of 42 months during the May through October

Quality As in the original application by Rounds and others (1999), this application
of CE-QUAL-W2 modeled the Tualatin River from RM 38.4 (Rood Bridge) to RM 3.4
(Oswego Dam), the reach with most of the water-quality problems. Both Rock
Creek WWTP (RM 38.1) adn the Durham WWTP (RM 9.3) were included as tributary
inputs. Ten other tributaries were ... View entire text
