Abstract:

Model investigation of the outlet works for the Beltzville Reservoir was concerned with the overall performance of both the flood-control and selective withdrawal facilities of the intake structure. The study was conducted in a 120-scale model of the outlet works which reproduced a portion of the approach area, the intake structure, the outlet conduit, and the hydraulic-jump type stilling basin. Modifications of the proposed outlet structure were required to provide effective regulation of flood-control releases up to about 2000 cfs and water-quality releases ranging from 35 to 300 cfs summer and winter flows.
