Title

  • Effect of Stratton Dam operation on flood control along the Fox River and Fox Chain of Lakes

Description

  • The purpose of this study was to use models to simulate the effect of the Stratton Dam operation, and possible structural modifications such as the addition of Foster gates, on flood stages and discharges in the Fox River and the Fox Chain of Lakes. The hydraulics and hydrology of Stratton Dam, the Fox River, and the Chain of Lakes were simulated for a wide range of historical flooding conditions and potential operation schemes. Responses for many different major flood conditions were analyzed, but two particular aspects of flood control were given special attention: 1) increasing outflow from the lakes in anticipation of a major flood, and 2) facilitating the flow release of the lakes by adding Foster gates at Stratton Dam and downstream at Algonquin Dam. This information will provide the IDOT-DWR with information for implementing possible modifications to the Stratton Dam operation during flood conditions.
