AE497: How Are the Reservoirs in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin Managed?

Figure 4. Composite Reservoir Action Zones in the ACF as of May 2012 (USACE 2012a). Units are in acre-feet (ac-ft). The conservation pool is the volume of the reservoirs dedicated for storage. When water levels are above the Top of Conservation, it is in the “flood pool” and will be released for flood control purposes.
