Looks like Splatek agrees, hes already embracing the idea with introspective Haikus.

So dredging Bull Sluice would restore year round cold water in the MF tailwater?

That is a great question that nobody can truly answer at this time. Another good question is who is willing to invest to find out?

I think the answer is "no". Now, Bull Sluice Lake is essentially a pass thru of water coming down from Buford. If the lake was dredged to be a lake again, it would be able to hold water, which would give it time to warm, in my opinion.

So, in your opinion, what has led to the decline of the trout fishery below mf dam if not for siltation warming the water and reducing aquatic plant growth?

Probably siltation and warmer water. But, siltation is its own problem, with its smothering effect, not just as a vehicle for warming water. And I think a lot of the warmer water is due to a lot less sustained releases from Buford in recent years, not just from siltation induced warming in Bull Sluice. That lack of releases adds to both the warmer water (less cold water coming down) and siltation (no high flows to blow out silt or keep it moving) issues, which is a feedback loop on itself, and so has caused drastic changes in a relatively short time.

These are the reasons I hope GA loses the Water Wars, to some extent, and has to keep up a higher minimum flow leaving Buford.

Surely no-one is still using a computer during personal time.

This thread reminds me of this article.
key points that stand out:
that bull sluice is at its hydrological equilibrium (has been since the 50's)
It would have to dredged again in 30 or 40 years

I remember from a few years back threads joking about how you could predict that it was going to rain for the next month based upon the fact that the DH season was upon us.
