Who is the Public?
The old concept of applying to the state for a right to use water has changed as the availability of unappropriated water has disappeared. Today the emphasis is on acquiring a water right...

Effects of Vegetation on Floods at Four Arizona Sites
Four examples show the effect of vegetation on stage, discharge or frequency of floods. An 8-year growth of trees on the streambed at site 1 increased channel roughness enough to cause...

Two Case Studies of Stochastic Identification of Aquifer Hydraulic Parameters and Natural Recharge
A method to identify aquifer transmissivity, storativity and natural recharge (inverse modeling), based on a geostatistical approach is presented. The basic assumptions of the method are...

SRP Water Demand Model: A Tool for Drought Planning

Arizona's Second Management Plan

Generator/Motors and Adjustable-Speed Drives for Waddell Pumped-Storage Plant
This paper describes the pumping and generating units and associated electrical equipment planned for Waddell Pumped-Storage Plant. Waddell Pumped-Storage Plant is to be located near Phoenix,...

Design and Construction of Lower Chase Creek Dam
Lower Chase Creek Dam is a roller compacted concrete flood control dam located in a generally dry creek in eastern Arizona. Dam design, including the site investigation and start-up of...

Computer-Aided Wastewater Master Planning
Computerized wastewater collection system modeling is a tool now used by city planners and engineers to efficiently and accurately analyze present and future conditions. Once a model has...

Master Plan of a Reclaimed Water System
Arizona cities are under a state mandate to reduce water consumption as a result of the 1980 Arizona Groundwater Management Act. Since reclaimed water use is not included in the overall...

Artificial Recharge: Key to Scottsdale's Future
The City of Scottsdale, Arizona has begun planning its strategy for meeting its future needs by recognizing artificial recharge, subsurface storage, and recovery as an integral component...

Comparison of Storm Water Management for Phoenix and Washington, D.C. Urban Areas
The design criteria, the methods of analyses, and the estimated costs of construction are compared for two storm water management systems in the Phoenix, Arizona and the Washington, D.C....

Computer Based Master Plans Manage Water Resources
Scottsdale is pursuing water and wastewater master planning with the goal of implementing a proactive water resources management policy. To prepare dynamic master plans with the above...

Near-Real Time Weather Information for Irrigation Management in Arizona
The Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) is a near-real time ag-weather information system for Arizona. A single personal computer running inexpensive bulletin board software controls...

Application of Social Science Research Products in Urban Water Resources Planning
Phoenix was spurred to action in 1981 because of the projected depletion of one of its surface water supplies by the summer of 1982. In addressing the projected near-term crisis, it quickly...

Design of an Alluvial Channel Relocation in an Urban Environment
The relocation of a three-mile (4.8 km) reach of the Salt River channel in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona is reviewed. The methods used for hydraulic analysis of this dynamic alluvial channel...

Alluvial Fan Flooding and Development Alternatives
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) utilizes a methodology which examines the probability of an incised channel forming at any given location across the fan, in consideration...

Comparison of Peak Discharges of Hydrologic Models
The objective of this paper is to evaluate the predictive capabilities of hydrologic models in estimating the magnitudes and frequencies of flood peaks by comparing them with the values...
