Two-Dimensional Water Quality Modeling Using CE-QUAL-W2 on Selected Reservoirs
MetadataShow full item record
Detailed modeling studies of major reservoirs within the ACT and ACF River basins were conducted to provide a basis for comparison of the impact of alternative allocations on the water quality of the reservoirs. The hydrodynamic and water quality model CE-QUAL-W2 was applied to six reservoirs within the ACT/ACF. The reservoirs included: West Point and Walter F. George (Lake Eufaula) Reservoirs on the middle and lower Chattahoochee River between Georgia and Alabama; Weiss Lake and Lake Neely Henry on the Coosa River in northeast Alabama; and Lake Allatoona and Lake Lanier in northern Georgia on the Etowah and upper Chattahoochee Rivers, respectively. The inflows, and their associated temperatures and water quality concentrations, and outflows for the CE-QUAL-W2 applications for each reservoir were provided from the results of the application ofHEC-5Q to the two basins. Simulations were conducted first to establish the baseline conditions for comparison, the no action alternative, which will be followed by simulations of the action alternative, based upon the water allocation formula.
