Oxygenation of Releases from Richard B. Russell Damby James W. Gallagher, Jr., US Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah, GA, USA,

Abstract: The oxygen injection system at the Richard B. Russell project has a continuous injection system located 1 mile upstream of the Russell damsite but also has supplemental injection capability at the face of the dam to be used during periods of higher than normal releases and unusually high dissolved oxygen deficits. Gaseous oxygen is supplied from a liquid oxygen storage facility on the lakeshore. The continuous system consists of a distribution pipe from the oxygen facility to two parallel diffuser pipes suspended 5 feet off the lake bottom.
