Wind Lake Improvement Plan Dredging Project Wind Lake, Wisconsin
Dredging has been used historically to improve navigation, however, it usefulness as a water quality improvement tool has not been widely proclaimed. Although costly to undertake, dredging...

Coastal Engineering Data Retrieval System (CEDRS)
The Coastal Engineering Data Retrieval System (CEDRS) is a menu driven microcomputer resident database which provides both hindcast and measured wind and wave data for use in the field...

Cryptosporidium and the Milwaukee Incident
In early 1993, Milwaukee, Wisconsin reported a sharp increase in the number of diarrhea patients and shortage of over the counter drugs for diarrhea control at local pharmacies. This increase...

Eliminating Water Column Separation and Limiting Backspin at a 12,000-Horsepower Pumping Plant
Milwaukee's Water Pollution Abatement Program includes a deep tunnel system which collects combined sewage and street runoff during storms for later treatment when capacity is available...

Minimizing the Probable Maximum Flood
A newly-developed probable maximum precipitation (PMP) estimate for Wisconsin and Michigan reduced precipitation depths by 20%. Should a given area's probable maximum flood...

The North East Wisconsin (NEW) Waters for Tomorrow Initiative

Urban Runoff and the Environment
This paper discusses complex water quality problems, including management of urban runoff. Mathematical modelling is used to asses runoff quantity and quality. Environmental impact...

Probable Maximum Precipitation Study for Michigan and Wisconsin: Procedures and Results

Issues in GIS-Based Subsurface Data Management
Obstacles and barriers preclude an interagency GIS application for managing spatially-related subsurface data. Such a system would enable geotechnical and earthquake engineers from state...

Piles for Marquette University Math Building
This paper presents a comparison of static pile capacity predictions using CPT cone resistance results with results of a test pile program and production pile driving. Pile capacity prediction...

Evolution of the Santee/Pee Dee Delta Complex, South Carolina, USA
The Santee/Pee Dee delta is located on the north-central portion of the lower coastal plain physiographic province of south carolina, USA, which is underlain by pleistocene strand plain...

Use of CLSM Fly Ash Slurry for Underground Facilities
This paper presents the results of research performed in developing and using flowable fly ash slurry which falls under the classification of Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM) as...

Quartzite—A Hard Rock Approach to Rubble Mounds
The quality of stone in rubble mound structures has always been a concern but seems to be more so the past few years. Breakwaters built in the 1920's using granite armour...

Construction on Wisconsin's Lake Michigan Coast
This paper provides a preliminary evaluation of a set of 100 residential properties along Wisconsin's Lake Michigan coast; an examination of the vulnerability of coastal homes and adequacy...

Evaluating Spillway Adequacy
More than a third of all dam failures are caused by overtopping. Equipment malfunctions or operations errors are sometimes to blame, but the principal cause is inadequate spillway capacity....

Hydrodynamic and Water Quality Modeling of Lower Green Bay
A confined disposal facility (CDF) for dredged material presently exists in lower Green Bay, Wisconsin. A planned expansion of the CDF is being studied to assess its impact on current...

Principles of Infrared Thermography and Application for Assessment of the Deterioration of the Bridge Deck at the Zoo Interchange
This paper details the principles of infrared thermography from the underlying theoretical considerations to the physical constraints involved with performing the test. Infrared (IR) thermography...

Service Records of Chicago District Breakwater Stone and How These Relate to Test Results
Breakwater stone production is limited to areas with geologic outcrops capable of producing large rocks. The most reliable breakwater stone is that which exhibits the highest degree of...

Estimation of Wind Fields for Coastal Modeling
Wind is an essential driving force for waves, circulation, and storm surge in coastal and estuarine areas. As with other horizontally 2-dimensional models, Corps of Engineers' (CE) numerical...

How the Office of Hydropower Licensing Resolved Seven Recent Relicensing Disputes
In May 1989, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) issued relicensing regulations in Order No. 513 to (1) help licensees whose hydropower licenses were about to expire...
