Abstract: The Environmental and Water Quality Operational Studies (EWQOS) Program, a major water quality research program funded by the Office of the Chief, US Army Corps of Engineers (CE), and conducted by the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, was designed to assess the relations between design, construction, and operation of Civil Works projects and exhibited water quality characteristics, and to develop and demonstrate technological means for ameliorating water quality problems in a manner compatible with project purposes. An important aspect of the EWQOS Program was the conduct of comprehensive studies of water quality processes in reservoirs. These studies involved both long-term and short-term limnological evaluations of four characteristic CE reservoirs. DeGray Lake, located in south-central Arkansas, was studied during the period 1967-1982. Research activities ranged from evaluations of geologic and hydrologic processes, to studies of complex biological, chemical, and physical processes influencing water quality, to the development of water quality models. A symposium was held to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas and an opportunity to synthesize these data in ways that will lead to a greater understanding of DeGray Lake, in particular, and of reservoir limnology, in general. Information gathered as a result of these studies and discussed herein will broaden the understanding upon which sound strategies for managing these valuable resources must be based. This report documents information presented at the symposium. NOTE: This file is very, very large (over 90 Mb). Please allow your browser 8-10 minutes to download the file.
