ICE CONDITIONS DURING WINTER WATER TEST RELEASES AT RIRIE DAM
Author : Meredith L. Carr , Steven F. Daly , Stephen Hall and Jeremy Giovando
To potentially increase storage over the winter season, the US Army Corps of Engineers has been evaluating flood control operations at Ririe Reservoir near Idaho Falls, Idaho. Because there is little experience with winter releases and a previous winter test release resulted in minor flooding of the Ririe Outlet channel and some surrounding farmlands, it is important to understand the potential problems associated with releases in these conditions. The potential for ice formation and ice jams or snow-slush blockages in the channel downstream of the reservoir were assessed based on simple guidelines, calculations and results of a test release in 2011.
