Effect of Surface Water and Ground Water Interaction on Atrazine Transport to Pumping Wells
High concentrations of agricultural chemicals in flood waters have been reported in many Midwestern rivers and streams. The public water supply wells of a number of riparian communities...

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...

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,...

Long-term Consequences of Recycling Drainage Water for Irrigation
Several long.term field studies (i.e. 6 yrs or more) conducted by the USDA/ARS and the University of California have demonstrated that saline drainage water (ECw...

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...

Development of the San Joaquin County Hydrology Manual
A hydrology manual was prepared for the County of San Joaquin, California for the determination of storm runoff quantities for the design of flood management facilities, floodplain analysis,...

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...

Effective Subsurface Retention/Detention Systems
Stringent environmental regulations and increasing land values have made finding an effective way to manage storm water runoff a high priority for consulting engineers and land developers....

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...

Identification of a General Linear Model for Reservoir Inflows Forecasting
General linear stochastic models represent a valuable alternative to conceptual models in order to describe runoff generating mechanisms in a drainage basin. In regions such as Quebec,...

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...

Anaheim State-of-the-Art Water Treatment Plant—Six Years from Conception to Completion
After six years of intensive planning, budgeting, pilot testing, design, and construction, the City of Anaheim, California, has successfully completed the modifications to the 15 mgd Lenain...
