A numerical simulation model was used to evaluate the thermal characteristics of the proposed Tallahala Creek Lake near Laurel, Mississippi. Several multilevel intake configurations were evaluated on the basis of capability of meeting a natural stream temperature objective. Each of the multilevel configurations exhibited similar performance in meeting the temperature objectives. One of the configurations was recommended because it will provide simpler operation. Additionally, a cursory analysis of anticipated dissolved oxygen content in and downstream of the lake was performed. Based on simulated oxygen profiles in the lake and potential reaeration through the Tallahala Creek Lake outlet works, it is expected that acceptable levels of dissolved oxygen will exist immediately downstream of the structure.
