Summary

Flow discharges were measured in the Des Plaines River from approximately river mile 286 to river mile 284 on October 19–21, 2015 using Teledyne Rio Grande 1200 kHz acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP). The data were georeferenced with differential GPS receivers with submeter accuracy. These flow discharge measurements were collected in support of the US Army Corps of Engineers Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS), and were concurrent with a dye-tracing study. The discharge measurements included here were collected in the following locations: immediately upstream, across, and immediately downstream of the NRG Energy Joliet Power Station right descending bank intake (North Intake) immediately upstream, across, [...]
