Abstract : This report documents the water quality impact on the Allegheny River basin for the existing regulation of all nine Corps reservoirs compared to both smaller low flow season releases and natural flow conditions. The Corps computer model, Water Quality for Rivers-Reservoir Systems (WQRRS), was calibrated and verified to observed water quality data and used to simulate the two alternative conditions. (Author)
