Abstract: This report summarizes the results of Environmental and Water Quality Operational Studies (EWQOS) Work Unit IIF, Reservoir Site Preparation. The results of EWQOS and non-EWQOS studies pertinent to reservoir site preparation and initial filling are given in a summary of the literature, including discussions of clearing, soil stripping, initial filling, and reservoir aging. The procedures developed at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station and the application of laboratory study results to changes expected in water quality as a consequence of impoundment are given, and representative data are used to illustrate important trends. Existing regulations and specifications on reservoir site preparation and legislative requirements are discussed in an appendix.
