Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The J. Percy Priest project, located on the Stones River near Nashville, TN, is experiencing problems with release water quality. A localized mixing system was proposed by the US Army Engineer District, Nashville, to resolve the problems. A pilot study and evaluation of original design criteria were conducted. Formulas were valid for strong stratification, but underpredicted the efficiency of dilution in weak stratifications. An operation plan for a system of three, six, or nine pumps was developed using generalized project data and the numerical model SELECT. Additional alternatives to further enhance release quality using partial lake destratification and hypolimnetic aeration were also evaluated. Appendix A presents generalized temperature and dissolved oxygen profiles for the reservoir.
