The elevation (in feet) that will be converted to volume
The reservoir to compute the conversion for. Spaces are removed from the name, and case is ignored.
Elevation is assumed to be provided in feet, and the volume will be returned in acre-feet. Currently, the function will work for Flaming Gorge, Navajo, Blue Mesa, Powell, and Mead reservoirs. The elevation-volume tables contain data for 0.5 foot increments. Volume is linearly interpolated for sub 0.5 foot values of elevation.
If the elevation is beyond the range of the resevoir, the function returns
Volume in acre-feet, or
NA if the elevation is invalid for the
