A simple numerical routing technique can be applied to develop a guide curve for the operation of a storage reservoir during multi-year droughts. This intuitive technique can be derived from past drought data to show when water releases from the lake should be limited to water supply and water quality alone. The technique was applied to Lake Lanier at present day levels of water demand using period- of-record droughts.
