Abstract : The usefulness of a reservoir is directly affected by the accumulation of sediment within the reservoir space. Appraisal of the extent of depletion is necessary to successful reservoir operation. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the sediment accumulation which has occurred in Boysen Reservoir since closure of Boysen Dam. This report presents the data analyses and summary of the following aspects of Boysen Reservoir sedimentation: (a) Field investigations, (b) analytical methods, (c) reservoir storage depletion, (d) quantitative sediment yield from the drainage area, (e) trap efficiency, (f) physical characteristics of the sediment accumulation, (g) distribution and disposition of the sediment accumulation, and (h) channel degradation below Boysen Dam.
