A channel will be excavated to connect the west side of Tioga Lake with the east side of Hammond Lake to permit the two reservoirs to be operated as one flood-control project. An overflow structure will be used to keep the drainage in Tioga Lake from entering Hammond Lake until storage in Tioga Lake exceeds the weir crest. Normal flows from Hammond Lake to Tioga Lake will be controlled by an outlet works in the structure, and flood flows in this direction will pass over the weir. The model investigation was concerned with the adequacy of the connecting channel and its associated structure. The study was conducted in a 180-scale model which reproduced a portion of the Tioga and Hammond reservoirs, the connecting channel including a plunge pool, weir, and outlet works, and the Tioga Lake outlet works in the structure.
