Scott Wells, Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty, received a grant of $114,000 from the Washington Department of Ecology to develop a water quality and hydrodynamic model of Banks Lake in Eastern Washington. Banks Lake receives water by pumped inflows from Lake Roosevelt on the Columbia River and provides irrigation water to a large part of eastern Washington for agriculture. This project will place special emphasis on looking at fish habitat changes that result from management changes in the lake system.
