Abstract: The turbidity structure of an impoundment was simulated using a mathematical model capable of simulating physical and chemical characteristics of an impoundment. Turbidity was handled as a conservative chemical substance. The model was used to predict the thermal and turbidity structures of an existing impoundment and was verified with observed data. The model was then used to predict the turbidity structure of a proposed impoundment. The effectiveness of selective withdrawal and, in particular, of a low-level outlet in controlling the turbidity structure of an impoundment was demonstrated.
