Lag Relations for Semi-Arid Regions and Urban Areas
The use of synthetic unit hydrographs often requires the estimation of lag or other travel time parameters. Several procedures are available for estimating such unit hydrograph parameters....

Evaluation of the Effects of Weather Modification to Enhance Reservoir Yield During Drought—Salinas Valley, California
Cloud seeding has been conducted for water years 1990-91 and 1991-92 in Monterey County, California in response to the extended drought. The Monterey County Water Resources Agency weather...

Adapting BMPs to California Hydrology and Climatology
The State of California has the most diverse hydrology and climatology in the United States. It boasts the highest and lowest elevations in the continental U.S. and annual rainfall varies...

Characterizing Storm Water Discharges for NPDES Management
A continuous simulation runoff yield analysis model is described which can be used to estimate runoff from any type of land use within a watershed. Such a model can be used to derive statistical...

Stormwater Management Program for the Pittsburgh International Airport
This paper describes the Pittsburgh International Airport Stormwater Management Program which was developed to provide a comprehensive approach to stormwater management on the PIT property,...

Implementation of Storm Water Management Programs in the California Land Development Process
One of the most powerful and encompassing tools for introducing storm water management programs to land development is through California's general plan process. California cities and...

A Frost Protection Design for Fruit Trees in Southwest Colorado
The project explores the feasibility of producing commercial quantities of fruit in the high and arid environment of Southwestern Colorado by using low-volume water delivery systems for...

The Role of Irrigation System Management and Performance in Facilitating Water Transfers
Unlike irrigation systems in the U.S.A. that are sustained by farmers in a manner that facilitates urban water transfers, the majority of irrigated lands in developing countries are managed...

Water Resource Management on the Texas High Plains: Controlled Chaos or a Model of Efficiency?
Rarely is a region's social and economic well-being more closely tied to a particular resource than on the semi-arid Texas High Plains, where the water supply is variable, often limited...

Cost Recovery for Multipurpose Water Delivery Systems in Egypt
This study addresses the problem of distributing costs to the beneficiaries of incremental expenditures needed to improve the performance of the Nile water delivery system in Egypt. Emphasis...

Some Needs for Irrigation Research in Czechoslovakia
In association with the changes in agrarian and social policy in Czechoslovakia under conditions of economic reform, a transformation of agricultural enterprise has been taking place....

Managing Irrigation in the Presence of Groundwater
A method was developed to use lysimeter data for groundwater contribution to crop water use in the irrigation scheduling procedure for a subsurface drip irrigated field underlain by shallow...

FLUME 3.0: A Computer Program for Designing Flumes and Weirs
Long-throated flumes and broad-crested weirs are becoming the preferred measuring devices for use in irrigation canals. A computer program for calibrating these flumes and weirs has been...

Density Fluctuations and Use of the Krypton Hygrometer in Surface Flux Measurements
The magnitude of the of the Webb et al. (1980) density corrections on water vapor fluxes due to the flux of sensible heat is examined in terms of the Bowen ratio. The correction due to...

Siting Agricultural Weather Stations
Studies were conducted in Arizona and Washington to investigate how the surrounding fetch affects data collected by agricultural weather stations (AWS). AWS surrounded by extensive areas...

The Utah Climate Center Weather Data Network
The Utah Climate Center weather data network includes 52 sophisticated, automated weather stations. Weather parameters are monitored in real-time and hourly summarized data are gathered,...

A Solid Waste Solution
Burgeoning growth and diminishing landfill capacity have been propelling Broward County, Fla. toward a solid-waste crisis. The county, located along Florida's southeastern...

Fundamental Principles of Tidal Wetland Restoration
Recognition of the vital role of tidal wetlands for sustaining migratory bird life, for indigenous animal habitat, and for the fishery of contiguous waters has stimulated efforts to restore...

Reclamation's Review of Operation and Maintenance Program
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is responsible for protecting the Federal investment in over 300 water storage and conveyance facilities in the 17 Western States. Reclamation's...

Gully Intrusion on Reclaimed Disposal Sites
A three-phase gully erosion study was initiated at the Engineering Research Center of Colorado State University, in cooperation with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The objective...
