Abstract: Studies to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of an oxygen injection system were conducted at Richard B. Russell Dam and Lake in 1995. Studies were conducted by deploying an array of automated water quality logging instruments upstream and downstream of the oxygen injection system and comparing their measurements. Hypotheses concerning oxygen accumulation in the forebay during periods of nonrelease and oxygen transfer efficiency as influenced by dam operation were evaluated. Studies point to the importance of operational events occurring up to 4 days prior to the measurement of the system’s efficiency.
