Surface Water Pump Assessment at TVA’s Douglas Dam

Jul 17, 2024
Environmental Issues and Water Management

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) uses several mitigation techniques to improve dissolved oxygen (DO) and water temperature of the released water through turbines. One of these techniques, described in this session, involves using surface water pumps to improve DO levels in turbine releases, in order to meet the tailwater DO content’s limit requirements. Findings from the proposed innovative surface water pumps will be presented.
