Sensitivity of Non-Point Source Pollution Controls to Land Use

Engineering Mechanics
This proceedings, Engineering Mechanics—Ninth Conference, consists of the texts of the three keynote lectures and brief summaries of submitted...

Site Impact Traffic Assessment
Problems and Solutions
Transportation needs have traditionally derived from land use decisions. Site impact traffic analysis is a formalized process that attempts to quantify the need for transportation improvements...

Performance of Recycled Asphalt Concrete Materials in an Arid Climate
Recycling of asphalt concrete pavement is a common practice for highway agencies. In 1981, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) constructed eight test sections in on experimental...

The Greening of Greens
Until recently, most consulting engineers thought golf courses were fun to design, good for the portfolio, but not worthy of much serious thought. Environmental issues and competing uses...

Targeting of AgI in a Utah Winter Orographic Storm
A cooperative research program among the Utah Division of Water Resources, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Bureau of Reclamation has investigated targeting...

Fly Ash Grouts for Subsidence Control
A laboratory investigation was undertaken to examine procedures for evaluating candidate grouts and to develop quality grouts for use in abandoned mines. The objective of this grout application...

Perils of Project Development on Public Land Open to Mining
Conducting a government project on public land open to the general mining laws can result in added costs, legal entanglements, schedule uncertainties, and the potential for unanticipated...

Management and Research of Desert Tortoises for the Yucca Mountain Project
A program has been developed for the Yucca Mountain Project (YMP) to manage and study the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizi), a threatened species that occurs at low densities at Yucca...

The Reclamation Program for the Yucca Mountain Project
The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) is required by law and other regulatory requirements to reclaim disturbances created by site characterization activities at Yucca Mountain. Because...

Getting the Lead Out
When officials from Omaha, Neb. announced an ambitious plan to revitalize an abandoned stretch of land along the Missouri River, the land itself presented one of the biggest problems....

Building a Geographic Information System (GIS) for Siting New York City Sludge Management Facilities
Siting studies for waste facilities usually focus on a particular geographic region, or a defined study area, and are restricted to a specific technology. However, the siting of land-based...

A GIS for the Louisiana Coastal Zone
The U. S. Army Engineer District, New Orleans is responsible for collecting, interpreting, and publishing large amounts of data related to engineering geology, subsidence, and land loss...

Establishing a Geographic Information System
The ultimate test of an advancement in civil engineering is the successful integration of aspects of the advance into the general engineering community. Success stories in this area include...

Application of a Geographic Information System to Hydrologic Modeling Using HEC-1
A geographic information system (GIS) was used to derive areally-weighted hydrologic parameters for input to the HEC-1 hydrologic model for approximately 600 square miles of Pierce County,...

Water Supply Uncertainties with Federal Permitting
Providing water in a semiarid region has historically been one of the most important responsibilities of government. This task was made more difficult by the uncertainties involved with...

Flood Hazard Scenarios in a Pleistocene-Holocene Basin
Technical scenarios are used to characterize the flood hazard in the Bayou Fountain Basin, an area of complex geomorphology and urbanization. Floods from three sources, 1) local precipitation,...
