Abstract:

In response to the drought in 1988, the low flow for the Mississippi Headwaters Lakes projects was reviewed. This review concludes that the routine low flow discharge rates for each project lake are adequate for present needs. However, some institutional aspects of the plan for low flow rate may need updating. It is expected that emergency conditions that would justify releases in excess of the routine low flow plan would be quite rare. An upward revision of the emergency discharge of 554 cfs will not be recognized without first consulting with the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.
