Two mass-transfer equations were developed to compute evaporation as a part of the evaporation were seepage-loss study for the Upper Lake Mary Reservoir near Flagstaff, Arizona, which has a capacity of 15, acre-feet and a surface area of acres.

The mass-transfer equations do not require an independent measure of evaporation to define the mass-transfer coefficient.

Such regions are most often characterized by significant seepage losses from reservoirs, besides evaporation losses.

Complying with the Mayor’s Proclamation to mitigate the spread of the Covid virus, Flagstaff Water Services wants to assure our residents that while buildings may be closed to the public, the business and function of our city government will remain open. That means residents will continue to have safe, reliable water services available, throughout this health threat.

Phase 2 of the study (March through September ) continues evaporation measurements at Lake Mead and begins evaporation measurements at another lower Colorado River Basin reservoir, Lake Mohave. Eddy covariance is the primary measurement method.


Sanford and David L. Selnick2 ABSTRACT: Evapotranspiration (ET) is an important quantity for water resource managers to Cited by: This report presents the results of a study to refine estimates of evaporation from Lake Mead.

Previously, estimated evaporation from Lake Mead (–95) may not be representative because of the methods used, and because some data used in the mass-transfer method were collected in the Las Vegas Valley rather than at the surface of the lake.

More water flowing now into Lake Powell makes the likelihood of the Upper Basin reservoir’s “operational tier” rising to an “Equalization Tier” in That could mean a big release of 11 million acre-feet or more into Lake Mead next year. But all this depends on Mother Nature and how much snow falls next winter.

Upper Colorado River Basin state leaders, in a letter Friday (Ap ), said the water management approach being taken by the managers of the Central Arizona Project “threaten the water supply for nearly 40 million people in the United States and Mexico, and threaten the interstate relationships and good will that must be maintained if we are to find and implement collaborative.

The Colorado River system of reservoirs and diversions is an important source of water for millions of people in seven Western States and Mexico. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, conducted a study from to to estimate.

As Colorado River runs dry, Arizona's water-resources staff has been depleted, too. Arizona’s government water experts remain a depleted resource seven years. Since the founding of Flagstaff, the city has completed three major water pipeline importation projects.

What are they. Installing pipes to bring spring water down from the mountains, upper and lower lake Mary dam along with six mile pipe to water treatment plant, bringing groundwater to surface from wells Question 4: In the early s, the City of Flagstaff started a significant water.

“Draining Lake Powell cannot be seriously considered for many reasons. But the principal reason is because life as we know it here in the West would be impossible without Lake Powell Reservoir.” A week later, on Oct. 5, Arizona Water News addressed the scientific and hydrological consequences of life without Glen Canyon Dam.

evaporation rates was minimal for the open-water stations, a single open-water station in Boulder Basin would provide data that are adequate to estimate evaporation from Lake Mead. Introduction Description of Study Area Lake Mead is the largest reservoir by volume in the United States and was formed when Hoover Dam was completed in (fig.

Under the direction of the Secretary of the Interior, the U.S. Geological Survey`s Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center (GCMRC Author: William S. Vernieu. Our process can reduce evaporation losses from lakes and reservoirs by chilling the surface of the lake using cold water from deeper in the lake.

If the water doesn't evaporate it can be used without reducing the amount of water flowing downstream or the lake level. The water level of a river is feet.

The river recedes 4 feet each year. Ingrid claims that the equation that represents this scenario is y = x – 4. capacity, the company uses Lake Powell to generate enough electricity to power about million homes, including users in Arizona and New Mexico.
