Abstract: Ice formation on reservoirs, rivers, canals, and associated structures hinders and at times prevents winter operation on a number of Bureau of Reclamation projects. Ice difficulties as they occur on rivers, water conveyance systems, and hydraulic structures are briefly described in this paper. Although the ice difficulties do not have simple solutions, several planning, design, and operational considerations are proposed to reduce the detrimental effects of ice formation. Environmental limitations to some of the river ice control problems are also discussed.
