Summary

Water level, flow velocity, temperature, salinity, and turbidity were measured in a breach constructed in a flood-protection levee surrounding a restored former agricultural area in Port Susan, Washington, USA, near the mouth of the Stillaguamish River. Data were collected in a breach known as PSB1 at 15-minute intervals from March 21, 2014 to July 1, 2015 using a SonTek Argonaut-SW current meter, an In-Situ Aqua TROLL 200 pressure, conductivity, and temperature sensor, and an FTS DTS-12 turbidity sensor.

Purpose

Observations were collected as part of the USGS Coastal Habitats in Puget Sound Project to characterize sediment fluxes in a recently restored agricultural area. An area of approximately 61 ha was reconnected to tidal flow via levee breaches. These data help assess the success of the restoration effort from a hydrodynamics and sediment-transport perspective.
