For these updates, WEST develops comprehensive period of record data sets from a variety of sources.  WEST develops all text, tables, and plates for the water control manual updates and has developed Python plotting programs for the development of unique time series plotting formats.  WEST fulfills all necessary GIS components needed for plates such as the Location and Vicinity Map and Sedimentation Range Data.  WEST performs updated computations with additional data that is available from the last update.  Updated computations include flow duration curves and pool elevation probability curves.  Project experience includes water control manuals for numerous Corps’ Districts, including:
