Tracy B. Vermeyen. 2006. "Hungry Horse Selective Withdrawal System Evaluation 2000-2003". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number HL-2006-06.

Abstract: Reclamation designed, constructed, and evaluated a unique selective withdrawal system use to control power plant release temperatures from Hungry Horse reservoir into the south fork of the Flathead River in Montana. In 1994, preliminary studies and a final design were completed. The selective withdrawal system was constructed and installed in 1995. Initial hydraulic and biological performance data indicated the system conforms well to results from preliminary studies. Furthermore, State of Montana’s water quality criteria established to improve aquatic habitat in the Flathead River below the dam are now being achieved. This report presents the results of a hydraulic and thermal evaluation of the Hungry Horse Dam selective withdrawal system.
