Abstract: This report documents efforts to evaluate the far field effects of altering flow rates from Gavins Point Dam on key water quality constituents in the Missouri River. A modified version of the US Environmental Protection Agency's one-dimensional riverine water quality model, QUAL2E, was used as a predictive tool to assess impacts from operational changes. Data for calibration and verification of the modified version of QUAL2E were collected by the Omaha and Kansas City Districts. Some of the topics addressed in this report are model description and modifications, calibration/verification, scenario and base condition boundary conditions, scenario results, and conclusions from the study results.
