  14. 14. Hood Canal  Flush Time - Diving the volume by the rate of net seaward flow. Hood Canal has low flush rate.  Differences between rapid and slow flushing rates  Tidal cycles are also factored into the flushing time by the number of cycles it takes to exchange total volume of an estuary. Takes many tidal cycles to exchange Hood Canal.  Cycling from tides is not always complete even after several tides  Depends on currents and topography. Fjord type does not allow rapid exchange.  High density of septic and human activity adds to pollution problems for the canal.
