Description: Special Report
Abstract: The effect of raising the reservoir level of Toston Dam on the Missouri River on water levels upstream during winter periods with ice is assessed. The analysis used the HEC-2 program with the ice option to estimate water levels under present and·future raised dam elevations. Ice thicknesses were estimated using a trial-and-error procedure based on existing ice jam theory. Results·of the analysis were validated using field observations from two winters.
