Yes, the model of the Puget Sound was accurate & simulated the tides in the Puget Sound. This model & an even more accurate model (at the University of Washington?) helped them properly place the Sewage plant for the growing Seattle region.
Also, the free fed money for a mass transportation system (which could have included an extended monorail system or whatever the region wanted), which Seattle turned down, went to Portland, Or. Portland now has a mass transportation system serving three counties.
