Impact of Streamflow Variability on the Colorado River System Operation

Citation

Keedy, Julia A, Salas, Jose D, Fontane, Darrell G, and Merritt, David M, Impact of Streamflow Variability on the Colorado River System Operation: .

Summary

The water supply provided by the Colorado River system is critical to millions of residents in the arid and semiarid western United States. Understanding the response of the system to possible hydrologic occurrences is important to water planners and managers for short, medium, and long term planning and operation of the system. A long sequence of historical streamflow records is available for the river system; however, this sequence is not sufficient to capture the complex temporal and spatial variability of the river system. The overall objective of the study is to determine the effect of alternative possible future hydrologic scenarios on water supply availability throughout the entire river system. Another objective is to estimate [...]
