Abstract
Description
The Bureau of Reclamation Sedimentation Section surveyed Lake Livingston in 1991 to gather data needed to compute the capacity of the lake for reservoir operation. The data were also used to calculate the volume of sediment that has accumulated in the lake since water storage began in June 1969. The 1991 reservoir surface areas were computed by the Width Adjustment Method. The storage elevation relationships based on the 1991 underwater survey data were developed using Reclamation's area-capacity computer program ACAP85. The findings are reported in this document.
