The Kalamazoo River Area of Concern (AOC) has multiple dam removals in various stages of completion. Following dam removal, river restoration activities will occur in impacted reaches. Hydrogeomorphic data from relatively undisturbed and hydraulically stable river reaches are commonly used to inform the design parameters of river restoration projects. Reference reaches should have similar prevailing boundary conditions as target restoration reaches, including water and sediment regime, valley and channel slope, valley confinement, bank heights, and riparian vegetation. This dataset characterizes the geomorphology of one reference reach, an approximately 500m reach upstream of Plainwell, MI. The reach has a drainage...
Reconnaissance of chemicals of potential biological concern in tributaries of the Great Lakes using passive samplers in 2010 and 2014
This data set is a compilation of data from two sampling efforts (2010 and 2014), focused on determining the presence and distribution of organic contaminants throughout the United States portion of the Great Lakes watershed. Water-borne contaminants were monitored in 69 tributaries of the Great Lakes using semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs), and polar organic chemical integrative samplers (POCIS). Analyses included 185 chemicals (143 detected) including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), legacy and current-use pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) and organophosphate fire retardants, pharmaceuticals, fragrances, industrial chemicals, surfactants, and others.
FluOil Model and Related Datasets for Kalamazoo River, Michigan, Oil Spill: July 21 to October 31, 2010
This data release contains the FluOil software and the inputs and outputs needed to reproduce the FluOil model findings for a related publication (Li and others, 2022). The FluOil model describes the fate and transport of oil-particle aggregates (OPAs) in inland waterbodies by using particle tracking algorithms to represent the advection, dispersion, deposition, and resuspension of OPAs in turbulent flows. FluOil was applied to analyze the OPA deposition areas along a reach of the Kalamazoo River, Michigan, after the July 26, 2010, oil spill incident. Input to the FluOil model include unsteady one-dimensional hydraulics, generated using the Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) 5.0.3 model,...
