The research program was designed to collect field temperature data and analyze the effectiveness of the minimum flow criteria as part of the study. The objectives of this research were to obtain field data on stream temperatures and discharge quantities from the dam. Then these data were to be analyzed to determine the following Warming rates and travel times for the three tailwaters Temperature differences stratification between the surface and bottom of pools in the stream and Impacts of local tributaries warm water on the tailwater. In addition to the above, the data were also to be analyzed to evaluate the effectiveness of the existing minimum flow criteria in maintaining temperatures suitable for a viable cold water stream ecosystem andor limiting habitat.
