Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, will install an innovative oxygen injection system in the proposed Richard B. Russell Reservoir to enhance the dissolved oxygen distribution in the reservoir and in the release. To complement this effort, a hybrid modeling study was conducted to evaluate the compatibility of various in-reservoir geometries with the injection scheme. The relative impact of four in-reservoir geometries upon the in situ and release water quality was investigated. Additionally, idealized calculations were made to determine the respective injection rates required to maintain a release dissolved oxygen concentration of 6 mg/𝓁 (or more).
