Abstract:

This report presents an evaluation of the existing reservoir operation plan and certain project features that affect the benefit-producing capability of the project. The plan formulation and evaluation were guided by the problems that were identified and summarized in the Problem Appraisal Report dated February 1985. This report supports a number of recommendations that center on a recommendation to test a modified operation plan. The recommended operation plan would improved project contributions to the authorized purposes of flood control and pollution abatement, although the pollution abatement requirements in the basin have significantly reduced in scope since the project was authorized. Present needs for fish and wildlife, instream flow, shoreline stabilization, cultural resources, and recreation would be addressed by the recommended operation plan and supporting structural features.
