Closure of Hazardous Surface Impoundments and Creation of an On-site Permanent Disposal Facility—A Case History
Remington Arms Co. is currently undertaking a RCRA closure program for nine surface impoundments in Lonoke, Arkansas. The impoundments contain a variety of listed hazardous wastes from...

Erosion and Sedimentation Research in ARS
The paper presents a brief history of the growth of the erosion and sedimentation research program in the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Subjects...

Method to Predict Cropland Ephemeral Gully Erosion
The U.S. Soil Conservation Service (SCS) in cooperation with the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) has developed a microcomputer program to provide estimates of the average annual material...

Relationship Between Channel Migration and Radius of Curvature on the Red River
The system behavior of meanders was investigated on the Red River between Shreveport, LA, and Index, AR. The effects of plan form geometry (r/w) and erodibility of bank material on the...

Calibration of a Movable Bed River Model
This paper discusses the calibration procedures used for a model study of three miles (5km) of the Arkansas River. A hydro-power station will be added to an existing Corps of Engineers...

The Effects of Bank Protection on River Morphology
Revetment of bends with radius of curvature to width ratios (R/W) between 1.9 and 3.3 on Red River AR, and Sacramento River CA, does not cause the expected thalweg deepening and channel...

Update: Ozark-Webbers Falls Turbines
The Ozark and Webbers Falls powerhouses were designed and constructed under the supervision of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Both are located on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation...

Murray—Commissioning Maxi Hydro with Mini Flow
The Murray Hydroelectric Project contains two of the largest pit turbines in the world. An existing dam constructed for navigation and flood control on the Arkansas River, Lock and Dam...

Planning and Operation of Hydropower Development on a Navigation System, a Case Study
This paper examines the steps taken to optimally develop the hydropower plant at Lock and Dam No. 13 on the Arkansas River as part of an existing multiple use system. The specific items...

Pit Turbine Technology for Low Head Hydro Projects
Manufacturers of hydro generating equipment have developed designs that are adaptable to existing dams and suitable for upgrading and redevelopment of existing hydro plants. The pit turbine...

MA to ARMA Two-Stage Monte Carlo Simulation
A prior autoregressive (AR) model can be the basis to obtain a quite eficient and reliable subsequent autoregressive moving average (ARMA) approximation. The design of the AR system which...

Simple Furrow Advance Ratio Evaluation Technique for Upgrading Management
A simple procedure using the Advance Ratio (AR) is presented. It utilizes on-farm gathered information of advance time, water application time, and depth applied for furrow irrigated field....

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...

Morphologic and Hydraulic Adjustments of Red River from Shreveport, LA to Fulton, AK, between 1886 and 1980
Morphometric data (channel width and depth and slope) from 4 hydrographic surveys of Red River (1886, 1938, 1968, 1980) from Shreveport to Fulton and specific-gage analyses for the gages...

An Analysis of Channel Stability of the Red River from Shreveport, Louisiana to Index, Arkansas
To analyze the stability of the Red River in the study reach (Shreveport, LA to Index, AR) two comprehensive hydrographic surveys were studied. The hydrographic surveys were compared to...

ARS Water Data Bank—A Storage System for Hydrologic Data
Precipitation and streamflow records are considered basic for all hydrologic studies, and are an important product of water research projects in the Agricultural Research Service (ARS)....

Cherokee Nation Power Development at a Corps Lock and Dam
In an arrangement among the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Southwestern Power Administration, the Cherokee tribe will finance, design and construct...

Hydropower on the Arkansas—A Non-Federal Development
Only two of the eleven navigation locks and dams in Arkansas were initially constructed with hydropower facilities. In 1980, Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (AECC) filed preliminary...

Modeling of the Undular Jump for White Water Bypass
Two of the authors have reported previously on the hazard that a conventional hydraulic jump with a uniform reverse surface roller presents to white water boaters. The intent is to create...

Irrigation and Groundwater Quality in the South
Impact of irrigation trend, water table fluctuations, crop management, and tillage systems on groundwater quantity and quality of the southeast (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina)...
