COLORADO RIVER-FLOW MANAGEMENT

A method of computing transient flow changes in a flowing stream is described. The results of more than five years of experience in the use of this method for estimating flows at the gaging stations of the 147 mile Parker-Imperial reach of the Colorado River are summarized. An account is also made of digital computer applications which enable tabulations of the expected flows at the gaging stations for each hour of the ensuing 24 hours to be made and transmitted to the Boulder City Office of USBR in time to be available at the beginning of each work day. Tabulation covering 72 hours are prepared for weekend operations.
