: A Dam is built on the Big River as a regional project designed to provide flood control and hydroelectricity for town A and to pump off via pipeline water to be used for farm irrigation in a relatively dry valley beyond the High Ridge mountain ridge
A 1. Above the dam and it’s fully filled (steady state) reservoir the cross sectional area of the stream 250 m2 and the velocity of the stream is 2 m/sec. Water is being pumped into the next valley at rate of 200 m3/sec. What is the current discharge of the Big River just below the darn?
A2. Describe what, if any, downstream impacts (along the Big River) there are from building the dam
A3. Describe what, if any, impacts the dam will have over time on Oceanside resort towns B and c.
A4. Describe what, if any, impacts the increased farming activity will have over time on Oceanside resort towns D and E
