Abstract: The QUAL2E model was modified to account for time variable headwater conditions and the photosynthesis and respiration of attached aquatic plants. With these modifications, a stream that is acutely impacted by either macrophytes or periphyton can be simulated. The modified model was used to evaluate the impact of the proposed reservoir and assess the potential of various mitigation measures.
