Modeling Hydrodynamics, Water Temperature, and Suspended Sediment in Detroit Lake, Oregon. Weather Underground provides local & long-range weather forecasts, weatherreports, maps & tropical weather conditions for the Detroit area. The USGS has worked since 1998 to monitor and study sediment and turbidity throughout the North Santiam River watershed. During January 2006, about 70 centimeters (27.6 inches) of precipitation were recorded at Detroit Dam, making it the wettest January ever recorded and breaking the previous record set in 1970. The summer temperature stratification acted to keep summer inflows, with their higher TDS concentrations, in the epilimnion, preventing these inflows from mixing into the colder, denser hypolimnion. All inflows contributed suspended sediment to the reservoir outflow. Although the sand and silt component made up most of the mass of suspended sediment entering the reservoir, it comprised only a small portion of the suspended sediment exiting the reservoir. The climate profile is taken from closest available data source to Detroit Lake. As the lake was not yet strongly stratified, these inflows acted to decrease TDS throughout the lake. Below are software products associated with this project. Detroit Weather Forecasts. After the model was constructed, calibrated, and tested, it was used to: (a) examine the sources of sediment to Detroit Lake and the lake's ability to trap those sediments, (b) estimate the amount and pattern of sediment deposition, and (c) simulate the in-lake and downstream effects of adding a hypothetical selective withdrawal to Detroit Dam to control release temperatures. 90.71 inch: Av.

During spring storms, the inflowing TDS concentrations were relatively low. Higher Snowfall Amounts possible above 6000 feet. To meet these objectives, USGS personnel constructed, calibrated, and tested a model of circulation, water temperature, and suspended sediment in Detroit Lake.
