Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Grand River Dam Authority, computed a 2009 capacity and area table of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. The capacity and area table defines the relation between the elevation of the water surface and the volume and area of water that is impounded. The capacity and area of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees were computed from a Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) surface created in Esri ArcGIS 10.5.1, a geographic information system (GIS). The TIN surface was created from three datasets: (1) a 2009 Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) bathymetric survey of Grand Lake (OWRB, 2009, 2016), (2) a 2017 USGS bathymetric survey of the Neosho, Spring, and Elk Rivers (Hunter and others, 2017; Smith and [...]

Purpose

This data release provides a 2009 update to the capacity and area table for Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. This table can be compared to an historical capacity table from a survey in March of 1940. The updated capacity and area table will help Grand River Dam Authority with planning and management of lake contents, especially in times of drought and floods.
