In order to reduce the negative effect of lower-temperature water released from the intake to the environment in the downstream reach, a selective withdrawal structure will adopted in Glen Canyon Dam. The 3D numerical model EFDC was used to simulate the velocity fields and water temperatures released with surface and lower withdrawal. The numerical results of water temperature released are validated with the measured data. The velocity fields with surface and lower withdrawal indicate that the… CONTINUE READING
