Abstract: The study analyzes the expected changes in the Paute River in Ecuador as a result of the construction of the Paute-Cardenillo Dam. Given that the project must remain viable throughout its useful life, the operational rules at the reservoir are required to include sedimentation effects. Four complementary procedures are used: empirical formulae, onedimensional simulations (sedimentation), two-dimensional simulations (flushing) and threedimensional simulations (detail of the bottom outlet).
