Question description

The Conowingo Dam is the southernmost dam on the Susquehanna River, 

and is a critical flood control project and electric power generator. Water flow 

through the dam’s turbines and flood control gates is roughly approximated by 

the following equation:

Discharge (gallons / second) = 1,500 + 350,000 (# of inches of rain received in

Harrisburg, PA in the prior 30 days)

a) The lowest recorded discharge flow through the dam occurred in 1969 

after a period of drought where there was no rain in the previous 30 

days (and almost none the previous 60 days). What was the flow rate 

through the dam at that time in gallons/second?
