Dealing with Rapid Growth in the Desert Southwest - Las Vegas, Tucson, and Phoenix: A Case Study

Arizona Groundwater Management Alternatives
Sustainable groundwater management policies are examined through the use of a hydrologic-economic impact model of Arizona surface and groundwater use. Present water use practices were...

Floodflow Effects on Riparian Vegetation in Arizona
A relation for estimating changes in the condition of riparian vegetation as a function of stream power was developed for stream channels in central Arizona. Flood and vegetation data...

Global Network Optimization for Pavement Management
In a state-wide pavement management system, the highway network can be divided into a number of road categories based on traffic level and geographical region. Network optimization analysis...

Development of an Intergovernmental Agreement For a Major Multi-Party Recharge Project in Central Arizona
The Salt River Project (SRP), a major power and water utility in the Phoenix area, and several municipalities recently completed the development of an intergovernmental agreement (IGA)...

Optimization of Reservoir Releases to Control River Sedimentation Using Differential Dynamic Programming
A new methodology is developed to address sedimentation control in alluvial rivers downstream of reservoirs. An optimization model is posed as a discrete-time optimal control problem to...

Biosphere II - Its Effects on Space Colonization
In the middle of the Arizona desert, a strange sight can be seen. A small world with ecosystems and different climate zones, just like Earth, is enclosed in glass and steel. The 3.15 acre...

Application of the PCRSS Reservoir Simulation Model to the Salt River Project
PCRSS is a general purpose reservoir system model construction kit. It allows the user to specify the system configuration and parameters through the use of a windows based graphic user...

The Use of Post-Tensioned Anchorages on the Arch Portion of Stewart Mountain Dam, Arizona
Post-tensioned rock anchorages were selected by the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to stabilize Stewart Mountain Dam against potential seismic loadings. The use of such anchorages...

Evaluating Soil Moisture and Hydraulic Conductivity in Semi-Arid Rangeland Soils
The United States Department of Energy's Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (DOE-OCRWM) Fellowship Program supports various disciplines of academic research related to the...

Modeling Adsorption of Mixtures of Radionuclides by Zeolitized Tuff
Multi-solute sorption isotherms were measured using 'nonscents', a zeolitized volcanic tuff material from Southeast Arizona. Isotherms for the three constituent binaries, Sr-Co, Cs-Sr...

GIS Reconstruction of Exposure to Water Supply Contaminants
Groundwater pollution resulting from improper waste handling practices in the aerospace industry contaminated the water supply in Tucson, Arizona. State and federal health officials concluded...

Residential Water Conservation and Reuse Demonstration: Casa Del Agua and Desert House
Occupied single-family homes can provide factual data as well as create an active real-world setting for education of the public. The installation of water-efficient fixtures, rainwater...

Impact of Groundwater Management Act and CAP Water Supply on Agricultural Water Conservation Programs
Irrigation districts in central Arizona have increased the tax assessments for their farms to pay for distribution systems to deliver Central Arizona Project (CAP) water. Many farms must...

The Evolution of Conservation Rates in Phoenix, Arizona
Conservation or increasing block rates first implemented in Phoenix, Arizona in 1982 were reexamined by a three year study involving Water Department staff, a Citizen Rates Committee and...

Projecting Customers Using a GIS Land Use Forecasting Model
The Salt River project originally developed the Land Use Forecasting Model to understand the pattern of urbanization of agricultural and desert land in metropolitan Phoenix. The model...

Cost-Benefit Evaluation of Network Level Pavement Management
This paper presents a cost-benefit analysis prepared for senior management. It uses the Alberta pavement management system as the primary case, and the Arizona PMS system as the second...

Evaluation of Plants for Coastal Dune Stabilization
The dune stabilization system used in the Phoenix Condominiums project can be used to enhance dunes all along the Atlantic and Gulf Coast. The plants and technology are available, which...

Hydrologic Runoff Models for the Arid Southwest United States
Recently, hydrologic study criteria manuals (or hydrology manuals) were prepared for the arid southwest regions of Clark County (Las Vegas vicinity, Nevada), Maricopa County (Phoenix vicinity,...
