The Army Corps of Engineers reservoir control
Web site reported Buffumville at 38 percent capacity and Hodges Village at 42 percent capacity yesterday.
shift involves nine of the system's 13 dams, dozens of rivers, scores of gauging stations, hourly hold-or-release instructions from the Reservoir Control
Center in Portland and, above all, weather, which always bats last in this seasonal game.
Given a target-reservoir system, policies to manage infection may contain elements of three broadly different tactics: 1) target control: directing efforts within the target population with no reference to the reservoir (e.g., human vaccination against yellow fever ); 2) blocking tactics: directing control efforts at blocking transmission between source and target populations (e.g., game fences to control FMDV in cattle); and 3) reservoir control
: controlling infection within the reservoir (e.g., culling programs, vaccination, or treatment of reservoirs).
In the reservoir control
center at Omaha that regulates six large reservoirs on the upper Missouri River, the emergency operations center was open around the clock.
Contract award notice: The purpose of this contract is to sample and analyze the parameters established for each of the following control programs: control program of water abstractions for human consumption: allows to control the quality of the water in the zones Designated for the abstraction of water intended for human consumption that provide an average of more than 100 cubic meters per day; Program for the control of emissions to the sea: includes the analysis of indirect discharges to the sea through rivers according to the OSPAR (International Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment in the Northeast Atlantic Area); Small reservoir control
program: includes water quality controls in smaller reservoirs.
Russell said the Army Corps of Engineers Reservoir Control
Center has been talking frequently with meteorologists in the Taunton office of the National Weather Service, and the plan was to close the dam gate at the Hodges Village Dam late last night.
