Conrads, P.A. and Lanier, T.H., 2017, Hydrodynamic data of Bushy Park Reservoir, South Carolina 2013–15: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


The Bushy Park Reservoir is a relatively shallow impoundment in a semi-tropical climate and is the principal water supply for the 400,000 people of the City of Charleston and the surrounding areas including the industries in the Bushy Park Industrial Complex. Although there is an adequate supply of freshwater in the reservoir, there are taste-and-odor water-quality concerns. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) worked in cooperation with the Charleston Water System to study the hydrology and hydrodynamics of the Bushy Park Reservoir to identify factors impacting water-quality conditions. This data release is for the hydrodynamic data collected during the study to support the application and calibration of a 3-dimensional hydrodynamic [...]
