Possum Kingdom Lake: The Impact of Releases for Fish and Wildlife
Possum Kingdom Lake is a 570,000 acre-foot reservoir on the Brazos River in Palo Pinto County, Texas, owned and operated by the Brazos River Authority (BRA). In 1985 the BRA applied to...

Water Measurement and Accounting of Lake Michigan Diversion
The diversion of water from Lake Michigan and the Lake Michigan Basin into the Mississippi River Basin has been regulated since the turn of the century. The U.S. Supreme Court Decree of...

Conflict Resolution, Reallocation and Management of Lake Texoma Resources
From its inception, Lake Texoma has created conflicts among users of its natural resources, including hydropower, water supply, flood control, and recreational users. Many attempts have...

Managing an Interruptible Water Supply
The Lower Colorado River Authority has developed a plan for the management of an interruptible water supply for demands which do not require a firm commitment of specific amounts of water....

Review of the Design, Construction, and Operation of the Lake Carolyn Flood Control Pump Station
A review of the design, construction, and initial operation of the Lake Carolyn Flood Control Pump Station in Irving, Texas is presented. Staged water resource development design concepts...

Spills: The Human-Machine Interface State of Our Knowledge
The International Joint Commission on the Great Lakes has entered into agreements on Great Lakes water quality. Many of the 3000 significant spills that occur in the Great Lakes Basin...

Evolution of a Three-Dimensional Curvilinear-Grid Hydrodynamic Model for Estuaries, Lakes and Coastal Waters: CH3D
Traditional finite-difference models of estuarine, coastal and lake hydrodynamics and transport use rectangular Cartesian grids in the horizontal directions. In order to accurately represent...

A Field and Modeling Study of Fine Sediment Transport in Shallow Waters
As part of a major effort to understand and quantify the phosphorus dynamics in Lake Okeechobee, the transport of fine sediments has been studied by combining numerical modeling with an...

A 3D-Stereo Graphics Interface for Operational Great Lakes Forecasts
A system for real-time predictions of Great Lakes physics and transport characteristics is now being implemented. The full 3D nature of the predictions demands accurate, high speed computer...

Contaminant Loading from Fox River to Lower Green Bay
The heavily industrialized lower reach of the Fox River, downstream of the DePere Dam, and lower Green Bay, Lake Michigan, are modeled. Hydrodynamics and contaminant transports to the...

Validation of Hydrophysical Components of a One-Dimensional Lake Model
A dynamic one-dimensional lake model has been developed in alternative structures, MINLAKE and FRMPND, for water-quality control strategies and lake eutrophication studies. Hydrophysical...
