Sediment accumulation in reservoirs displaces available water storage, increases operational difficulties and costs, and decreases reservoir benefits. Given the large volumes of sediment that annually accumulate in reservoirs, traditional methods for sediment management such as dredging with disposal into confined disposal facilities CDF are often cost prohibitive and impractical. This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE Regional Sediment Management Technical Note RSM-TN presents analysis of a relatively low-cost hydrosuction sediment removal system for Tuttle Creek Lake in Kansas, USA.
