It doesn't make sense until the COE directives are understood. Mostly it is about downstream conditions and demands for water. Flood control and water conservation is the primary function of most COE reservoirs and often they deal with one extreme or the other (drought or flood). Either way the COE has directives, rules & laws they follow when it comes to managing the lakes. It is seldom any one person that makes decisions about the what, where, when and how the COE operates.
