Abstract: A hydraulic model of Kinzua Dam, Pennsylvania, was used to evaluate various methods of preventing riverbed material from entering the stilling basin and causing erosion problems. Major spillway rehabilitation projects required in 1973 and again in 1983 prompted this study. Holes in the stilling basin concrete up to 25 ft in diameter and 42 in. deep were noted. The rock trap selected as the final design was constructed in the prototype in the fall of 1983 and has been most effective in keeping material out of the basin to date. Strict adherence to the sluice gate operating schedule has been enforced and has also contributed to the success of the final solution.
