to measure reservoir sediment thickness, and a global positioning system (GPS) receiver and measuring tape were used to determine location and distance for mapping. In September and October of 2002 as water level elevation was returning to 167.6 m, another survey was done on foot in the east branch of the reservoir with a GPS and gouge

The Fena Valley Reservoir is in southern Guam and is the primary source of water for the U.S. Naval Base Guam and nearby village residents. Since the construction of the Fena Dam in 1951, sediment has accumulated in the reservoir and reduced its storage capacity. The reservoir was surveyed previously in 1973, 1979, and 1990 to estimate the loss ...

Reservoir sedimentation - SlideShare

4. SEDIMENTATION IN RESERVOIRS Rivers carry different types of sediments down their riverbeds, allowing for the formation of riverbanks, river deltas, alluvial fans, braided rivers, oxbow lakes, and levees. The construction of a reservoir blocks the flow of sediment downstream, leads to increased sediment build-up in the reservoir. While the ...

ABSTRACT: Bathymetric and sedimentation surveys were conducted using a dual frequency (28/200 kHz) echo sounder system in two reservoirs (Lee Creek Reservoir and Lake Shepherd Springs) in the Ozark Plateau of northwestern Arkansas. Echo sounder survey data were merged within geographic information system (GIS) software to provide detailed visualization and analyses of current depths, pre ...
