FLUPSYs Facility. Port Gamble, Washington.


  • Wind wave analysis
  • Analysis of climate change scenarios

Location: Port Gamble, Washington
Owner: Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe
Year: 2016


Fain Environmental conducted a wave height analysis for the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe for the proposed site of two FLUPSYs in Port Gamble Bay. We analyzed historical wind data and calculated significant wave heights. We determined the maximum breaking wave height for different wind direction and speed scenarios. Our breaking wave height was used to design the FLUPSY anchors.
