Use of Artificial Neural Networks for Agricultural Chemical Assessment of Rural Private Wells
The detection of agricultural chemicals in rural private wells has prompted for numerous studies at regional, state, and national levels. A principal concern arises from the fact that...

Simulation of Unsaturated Zone Virus Transport Adjacent to Municipal Wells
The EPA proposed groundwater disinfection rule for municipal wells would allow exemptions if, among other options, the necessary virus source setback distance could be maintained to provide...

Impacts of Sea Level Rise on Coastal Water Resources Management
Two major topics related to water resources management in coastal areas due to the impact of sea level rise are drainage problems/flood control and change of estuarine processes. Issues...

Reduction of Downstream Impacts Through Use of Variable Detention Basin Volume Requirements
The Pre-post Match is the standard policy for regulating the design of detention basins for new developments despite evidence showing that as multiple developments occur in a watershed,...

Draining Himalayan Glacial Lakes Before They Burst
Glacial lakes are a common feature of the Himalaya in general and the Khumbu Himal region of eastern Nepal in particular. Some of these glacial lakes are naturally unstable because of...

Direct Sizing of Small Stormwater Pump Stations
Pump stations are components of stormwater drainage systems that remove collected storm runoff from locations where drainage by gravity is not feasible. Usually pump stations will operate...

Emerging Concepts for Management of Salinity and Drainage in Irrigated Regions
The purpose of this paper is to very briefly highlight some physical and design concepts important to management of salinity and drainage in irrigated regions in an environmentally sensitive...

Shallow Ground Water Management with a Modified Subsurface Drainage System
An existing subsurface drainage system was modified to control the flow from the drain laterals and to control the water table depth on a portion of the field. Tomatoes and cotton have...

Efficiencies of Drainage Systems and Improved Water Management
Drainage of agricultural lands has become a contentious issue as concern increases over the actual economic benefits of subsurface drainage in irrigated regions relative to the impacts...

Beneficial Aspects of Flood and Rain in Countries Where the Drinking Water is Naturally Contaminated with Fluoride Where Fluorosis is a Major Public Health Problem
Floods, although considered destructive, have beneficial aspects too. This report is about one such instance where flood waters are considered extremely beneficial in countries where drinking...

Effects of Ignoring Well Losses on the Specific Capacity Function
This paper combines these equations with the traditional step-drawdown equation to generate a more realistic relationship among discharge, specific capacity, and drawdown. Under both confined...

Searching for Optimal Combinations of Stormwater Detention Basins
Hydrology of urban areas is dominated by two distinct characteristics: (1) a preponderance of impervious surfaces created primarily by pavement and roofs, and (2) the presence of constructed...

Artificial Recharge in the Oakes Test Area
The Oakes Test Area (OTA) was developed to evaluate predicted impacts of developing irrigation in the Garrison Diversion Unit in North Dakota. A limited irrigation water supply has forced...

Design and Implementation of On-Farm Surface Drainage Projects in the Humid Tropics of Mexico
In the humid tropics of southeastern Mexico, the Mexican National Water Commission (CNA) has constructed a network of collector drains for stormwater runoff removal. At the same time the...

Flash Floods and Their Control in the Indian Arid Zone
Flash floods are common hydrologic phenomena in the arid north west India. Drainage basins of high relief, a large percentage of surficial bed rock, sparse vegetation, and shallow soils...

Conjunctive Water Use Transforms a California Desert
An area doing multi-billion dollar recreational and agricultural business in the Southern California Sonoran desert owes its existence and well being to two things—wise water planning...

Development of a Hydrologic Model with Both Spatially Distributed and Physically Based Capabilities
A distributed hydrologic model is developed at The Pennsylvania State University for use with rasterized data bases. The purpose of the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model or THM is to investigate...

Mixing Processes in the Dangava River Estuary
The aim of this report is to present main changes in the hydrology of the Daugava River estuary after its natural water flow became regulated and to present a simple physical model of...

Current Status of the Demonstration Management Improvement Program
Coordinated resource management programs have been developed and implemented in the Maricopa-Stanfleld Irrigation and Drainage District (MSIDD) area as a result of the Management Improvement...

The Management Improvement Program: An Irrigation District's Perspective of the Demonstration Program
In November 1990, the Maricopa-Stanfield Irrigation and Drainage District agreed to participate in the first application of the Management Improvement Program (MIP) for irrigated agriculture....
