Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report presents field and analytical techniques for studying the mechanisms and chemical transformations occurring in reservoir tailwaters. The research focuses on the poor water quality associated with deep, anoxic releases from hydropower and non-hydropower reservoirs. Water quality results from the tail waters of the Little Missouri River (Lake Greeson), Fouche La Fave River (Nimrod Lake), Rough River (Rough River Lake), and Guadalupe River (Canyon Lake) are presented and discussed.
