Abstract:

The purpose of this design memorandum is to present for review and approval a detailed paln for monitoring water quality, flows and stage in the water systems which are expected to be subject to significant project effects and determining the effect of freshwater flow changes in the Cooper River on the hydraulic, slainity, and shoaling characteristics in Charleston Harbor. The present plan includes costs for equipment, operation and maintenance, and details of information to be collected by the program. This design memorandum covers pre-project as well as post-project conditions to permit necessary comparison of data to determine project impacts. The monitoring arrangement for the Cooper River would be sufficiently sophisticated to permit early warning necessary to make appropriate releases in accordance with the operations manual at the Jefferies Hydroplant to repel any salinity threat to industries utilizing Bushy Park Reservoir as a source of fresh water. The monitoring arrangement for Charleston Harbor would provide information on stratification and shoaling.
