Effects of Hydromodernization on Tailwater Fish Habitats

Head Recovery in the Tailwater of Low Head Hydro Power Stations

Modeling Approaches for Tailwater Enhancement

Total Dissolved Gas in the Near-Field Tailwater of Ice Harbor Dam

Managing Border Irrigation for Near-Zero Discharge
A dimensionless database of previously executed simulations of sloping-border irrigation with tailwater runoff constitutes the heart of design-aid software showing the effects on runoff...

Influence of Backwater on Headcut Advance
A study was performed to examine the influence of backwater level downstream of an overfall on headcut advance. The discharge, overfall height, and soil type were held constant while varying...

Tailwater Fishery Management Using a Fish Bioenergetics Model
Water releases from TVA reservoirs exert great influence on downstream water quality. Analytical tools to quantify biological response to altered environmental conditions, such as dissolved...

Local Scour Potential for Large Bed Material with Shallow Tailwater Depth
Jet momentum acting on a bed particle and submerged jet diffusion theory were employed to derive scour prediction formulas in a plunge pool. Semi-theoretical formulas were suggested for...

RCHARC: A New Method for Physical Habitat Analysis
The Riverine Community Habitat Assessment and Restoration Concept (RCHARC) is applied to the Gavin's Point tailwater of the mainstem Missouri River as part of studies by the U.S. Army...

Predicting Basin-Wide Tailwater Temperature Patterns by Combining Mechanistic and Statistical Water Quality Modeling
A simplified method for predicting water temperature patterns downstream of a peaking hydropower dam is described for the Fort Randall Dam tailwater of the mainstem Missouri River as part...

Uncertainties of Tailwater in an Inundation Study: Dam Upgrade Optimization for Hazard Reduction
When an upgrade is required for a dam with an inadequate spillway system, the potential impact of tailwater during an extreme storm in an inundation study should be considered. This paper...

Chatuge Hydroproject Aerating Infuser Physical Model Study
The Tennessee Valley Authority is investigating the feasibility of a dual purpose reregulation and aeration weir to increase the dissolved oxygen in water releases and to provide continuous...

Use of Weirs for Tailwater Improvements Downstream from TVA Hydropower Dams

Dynamic Fish Growth Modeling for Tailwater Fishery Management

Thermal Regimes at Tailwaters of Hydroelectric Dam
Continuous temperature data were collected in the field for periods of approximately two weeks in Center Hill Tailwater. These data were analyzed to determine the warming rates and travel...

Tailwater Concerns and the History of Turbine Aeration
All new proposals for hydropower development and many of the almost 300 hydroelectric projects which will be relicensed before 2000 will have to address the issue of minimum dissolved...

Mechanical Aeration System Design for Reservoir Tailwater Enhancement
Low dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations in tailraces below hydropower facilities has been identified as a problem at some projects during nongeneration periods. One technique which may...

The Effect of Aeration on Scour
A vertical water jet was used to study the effects of entrained air, tailwater depth, size of bed material, jet diameter, and jet velocity on scour. Small amounts of entrained air were...

Economic Impacts of Storm Sewer Design Criteria
This paper discusses the selection of storm sewer design criteria and the resulting economic impacts. Using the Rational Method for calculating design flows, an investigation was made...

Scour Protection at the Straight Drop Spillway
Tests were conducted to determine the scour and the effect of tailwater on scour downstream of the straight drop spillway stilling basin. Preliminary results are presented on performance...
