Central Arizona Project Concept of OperationSpringer, Frank C., Jr.; Graves, P. E.; Graves, Albert L.; Operations and Maintenance Branch, Arizona Projects Office, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix, Arizona (Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science, 1979-04-13)The Central Arizona Project (CAP), presently under construction, will convey Arizona's remaining entitlement of Colorado River water to three central Arizona counties. As a result of the recently completed CAP Real-Time Operations Study, a concept of operation has been developed. The concept of operations defines three types of operation beginning with an initial manned operation in 1985, a transition operation, and a permanent operation using a computer assisted remote control system. Under the permanent operation, computer models will be run in advance to define weekly and daily pumping plant and check gate schedules.
