River Restored
After floods devastated the Big Thompson River area in northern Colorado in 2013, engineers worked to restore key reaches of the watershed. Their rehabilitation efforts featured channel grading, bank stabilization,...

Design Considerations Common To All Permeable Pavements
Impervious cover in watersheds without controls result in increased stormwater runoff and decreased groundwater recharge in response to rainfall events. This increased runoff can be the...

Watershed-Based Permitting — A Myth or Reality?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has promulgated the Total Maximum Daily Load process to achieve the goals of the Clean Water Act. The TMDL processis applied to water...

Watershed Modeling for Surface-Groundwater Interaction
Groundwater use has increased rapidly due to irrigation development in the Great Plains. This is especially true in the Republican Basin that intersects the three states of Nebraska, Kansas...

Advances in Watershed Management and Fluvial Hazard Mitigation Using Artificial Neural Networks and Remote Sensing
Watershed and channel management across spatial and temporal scales requires an informed, interdisciplinary approach by experts and stakeholders, who often have disparate goals and objectives....

A Decision Framework for Stormwater Control in Urbanized Watersheds
Historically, urban growth occurred around water bodies due to factors such as easy access to transportation, water supply, and drainage. With the expanded transportation network along...

Effects of Impervious Area Estimation Methods on Simulated Peak Discharges
The variability of simulated flood discharges is evaluated using two methods for estimating impervious surfaces and common design methods in the Mission Creek watershed (31 sq km) located...

History of the USDA-ARS Experimental Watersheds on the Washita River, Oklahoma
A national experimental watershed network, operated by the Agricultural Research Service of the US Department of Agriculture, was established in 1959 to conduct research on the effects...
