Abstract: The Ohio River Division (ORD) of the Corps of Engineers operates 77 reservoirs in this basin for the purposes of flood control, conservation, hydropower, low flow augmentation, water supply, recreation and fish and wildlife enhancement. The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) system was selected as the best real-time data collection system to meet ORD needs. GOES data collected by the Division Office and transferred to the districts, where additional data is available from telemarks, NWS, State observers, TVA, etc. This system will enable the ORD to better meet the water management objectives in the Ohio Basin.
