ICE TRANSPORT IN GRASSE ISLAND POOL OF THE NIAGARA POWER PROJECT
Author : Fengbin Huang, Hung Tao Shen, and Ian Knack
This paper presents a numerical model study on ice flow in the Grass Island Pool (GIP) of the upper Niagara River. The objective of the study is to evaluate the causes and solution alternatives for minimizing the occurrences of ice stoppages that periodically develop at the Niagara Power Project intakes and at the downstream end of the Project's ice flushing channel. The primary focus of this study is to examine the influence of sediment or debris encroachment of the iceflushing channel of the river on increased instances of ice stoppage; illustrate the benefit of sediment or debris removal by dredging the ice-flushing channel to its original configuration;
