Briefing Paper on the “Worst Case” Implications of Low Missouri River Flows For Power Plants
Metadata[+] Show full item record
In April 2004, FAPRI evaluated two water control plans considered by the Corps of Engineers for the Missouri River in terms of their impact on power plants. The Corps called these plans the Preferred Alternative and the GP2021 plan. The Preferred Alternative plan was adopted by the Corps on March 19, 2004, as the new water control plan. The GP2021 water control plan includes a spring Gavins Point release of 20,000 cubic feet per second above navigation requirements and a low summer release of 21,000 cubic feet per second.
