Abstract: Dissolved oxygen and temperature data from twelve Corps of Engineers civil works projects were analyzed relative to oxygen uptake through the project's outlet structure. All the structures examined were similar gated-conduit outlet works. The Energy Dissipation Model (EDM) and Deficit Ratio Model (DRM) were evaluated for use in predicting reaeration through outlet works. Most of the structures reaerated their releases to 80-90 percent of saturation. The EDM appears more appropriate for use with structures than does the DRM.
