Going by what DVB told of elsewhere.

An approximation for each Unit (if @ 501.25', or 5 Units per 0.1' level):

19.239 million cubic feet of water.

1.1966658 billion pounds of water.

598.3329 thousand tons of water.

143.92 million gallons.

217.9735563 Olympic-size swimming pools (when 50 x 25 x 2 meters, or 164.042 x 82.02 x 6.56 feet).

A volume of 895.329649 x 895.329649 x 12 feet (or 164 x 9773.4 x 12 feet).


Sorry for all the decimals... didn't want to try rounding anything out as I put them into the calculator.

I can't guarantee the accuracy of this, so please be aware it might not be correct. I've been wrong before. doh

Lake area in square feet is 923,472,000 (or cubic feet if 1 foot depth) so if any of you want to prove or disprove the above please do! Smile

And thank you again DVB for the starting point:

Units to drain 0.1' at 510' AMSL = 5.78; at 505' = 5.33; at 500' = 4.89.

From which I have inferred this:

Units to drain 0.1' at 515' = 6.24 Units; at 495' = 4.46 Units; at 490' = 4.04 Units.
~1/4" (or 0.25 inch) per Unit @ 501.25' AMSL; 48 Units for a 1' drop in level (again, @ 501.25' AMSL); 923.472 million cubic feet per 48 Units.
