Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


Water quality enhancement technology is applied to a wide variety of field conditions in surface waters including rivers, lakes and reservoir epiliminia, lake and reservoir hypolimnia, and the flow through hydraulic structures. Complex boundary conditions are common for these types of open systems, making a proper analysis of the field application essential to the success or failure of a given technology. This paper will review the mature and the new water quality enhancement techniques that have application to river-reservoir systems.
