Abstract:The Gepatsch reservoir is emptied in recurring intervals to enable a functionality check of the hydraulic structures and its installations. The lowering of the water levels and consequently the emptying of the reservoir is conducted in an ecologically sustainable way via the penstock. This procedure enables the opportunity to measure sediment characteristics directly in front of the turbines. This project focuses on the measurement of suspended sediment concentrations and the subsequent grain size distribution by using a LISST-StreamSide. It involves the implementation of the equipment, the monitoring itself and the analysis of the results.
