Abstract

The Lake Ogallala hydropower tailwater reservoir is subjected to wide fluctuations of the inflow water quality and quantity. These alterations impact lake temperatures, water stage, dissolved oxygen (DO) and nutrients. A two dimensional continuous simulation, hydrodynamic and water quality model, CE-QUAL-W2, was used to simulate the lake's dissolved oxygen. The elements modeled include surges of low DO and temperatures; high chemical oxygen demands and dissolved nutrients; in-lake algae, macrophytes, and epiphytes response; temperature and bathymetric induced circulation patterns; and weather impacts. The epiphyte routine was used to simulate macrophytes, and the model was able to emulate the diurnal DO and temperature fluctuations which ranged from 2 to 12 mg/L and 19.5 to 23 degrees C, respectively. The study found that the chemical demand resulted in an approximately 1.5 mg/L drop in DO across the lake but also found that macrophyte respiration causes approximately a 2 mg/L reduction in DO during dark respiration. Management alternatives were modeled based on controlling the inflow of DO and macrophyte harvesting.
