Lower Stone Canyon and Encino Reservoirs Water Quality and Impact Evaluation

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

Flow Science evaluated the impacts of proposed operational changes on the water quality in Lower Stone Canyon and Encino Reservoirs. The work included one- and three-dimensional hydrodynamic and water quality modeling to evaluate the impact of the new operations on the dissolved oxygen and taste and odor in the reservoirs. The work also involved a detailed investigation of the feasibility of implementing hypolimnetic oxygenation and/or selective withdrawal.
