The focus of this present study is to perform the following tasks:
* Develop a hydrodynamic and water quality model of the reservoir formed by the Amaila Falls Hydroelectric Project
* Develop and run modeling scenarios
Water quality model simulations of the 23.3 km2 reservoir for Amaila Falls Hydroelectric Project were conducted for low, average, and high flow years. A scenario with no vegetation removed from the reservoir for an average flow was also simulated. Conditions downstream of the reservoir were also modeled using a river model.
The model used for the reservoir formed by Amaila Falls Hydroelectric Project is the public domain model, CE-QUAL-W2.
