Abstract:

The U.S. Army Engineer Division, Ohio River, directs the operation of Barkley and Kentucky Reservoirs on the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers, respectively, during periods of flooding on the lower Ohio and lower Mississippi Rivers. Flood control regulation by these reservoirs is met by controlling, to some degree, the Ohio River stage at Cairo, Illinois. A mathematical model, SOCHMJ, capable of accurately predicting Ohio River stages as a result of reservoir operations at Barkley and Kentucky Reservoirs has been developed. SOCHMJ provides the capability of modeling a system containing an unlimited number of junctions. The physical limits of the Ohio-Cumberland-Tennessee-Mississippi system modeled herein are Golconda, IL, on the Ohio River Barkley Dam on the Cumberland River Kentucky Dam on the Tennessee River Cape Girardeau on the upper Mississippi River and Caruthersville on the lower Mississippi River.
