In Summer, 1986 a field program was conducted in Ware Creek from its mouth at the York River to the dam at Richardson's Millpond. The data collected was combined with flow data from USGS and a tide record from NOAA and was used to calibrate and verify a one-dimensional, real-time, hydrodynamic and salinity intrusion model. The model has been applied to study the effect of the proposed dam and reservoir on the salinity distribution in Ware Creek.
