Short summary
The Huangpu River, an important river of the basin connecting Lake Taihu upstream and the Yangtze River estuary downstream, drains two-fifths of the entire basin. Constructing an estuary gate is considered an effective solution for flood mitigation. The main objective of this paper is to assess the potential contributions of the proposed Huangpu Gate to the flood control capacity of the basin. Results of quantitative analyses show that the Huangpu Gate is effective at evacuating floodwaters.
