Percent Full Determination

This category appears only when the Reservoir System Percent Full Regulation method is selected in the Regulation Discharge category. The selection here determines what type of water is included in the numerator for the percent full calculations performed in that regulation discharge method.

Flood and Surcharge Water

Selecting this method means that flood pool and surcharge pool water will be included in the numerator of the reservoir system percent full calculations. Since the denominator in these calculations is only the capacity of the flood pools of all the reservoirs in the system, including surcharge water in the numerator means that the percent full for the system can be greater than 100 percent. This is the default method selection because this is the way that COE’s SUPER program performs this calculation.

There are no slots specific to this method.

Flood Water Only

Selecting this method means that flood pool water only is included in the numerator of the reservoir system percent full calculations. Since the denominator in these calculations is the flood pool capacity of all the reservoirs in the system, the maximum possible percent full is 100 percent.
