Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to review, in a synpotic fashion, the technology developed within EWQOS (Environmental and Water Quality Operational Studies) on the following reservoir water quality enhancement alternatives: (a) total reservoir destratification; (b) localized mixing; (c) oxygenation; and (d) structural and/or operational modification through the use of multilevel selective withdrawal. For each alternative, the pertinent EWQOS documentation will be referenced; available design concepts presented; and general applicability discussed. Specific reference to techniques for the reaeration of hydropower releases and to the reaeration potential of gated-conduit hydraulic structures will not be discussed herein.
