Uncertainty in the Geologic Environment
from Theory to Practice
The state-of-the-art is presented with respect to analytical and design methods incorporating uncertainty in the geologic environment. Particular emphasis is placed on practical applications...

Asphalt-Concrete Water Barriers for Embankment Dams
Because of its simplicity in design and construction, the asphalt concrete core is rapidly becoming the water barrier of choice for embankment dams in many parts of the world. This is...

Sanata Ana River Project Environmental Compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
The National Environmental Policy Act(NEPA) was first enacted in. 1969, and became effective as of January 1, 1970. The law was intended to ensure that balanced decision-making occurs...

Two-Dimensional Modeling of River Dynamics for the Expansion of Clover Island, Kennewick, Washington
The Port of Kennewick, Washington, is proposing to redevelop Clover Island as a waterfront village concept. The island is located in the Columbia River between McNary and Priest Rapids...

Developing a Rating Table for the Central Diversion Dam Radial Gates
The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District uses radial gates for flow control throughout its system. The rating tables for five radial gates on a diversion dam are in error,...

Guist Creek Dam Spillway Upgrade: A Maze (Labyrinth) of Difficulties
Any dam that holds back a large quantity of water is potentially dangerous. Some dams are more of a threat than others, especially those with human populations and valuable property in...

Dam Foundation Erosion Study: Pit 4 Scale Model Simulation
This paper describes the results of a sub task of the Dam Foundation Erosion Study, a cooperative research study by Reclamation, PG&E, Colorado State University, and Western Area...

Santa Ana River Mainstem Project
The Santa Ana River Mainstem Project consists of seven major features including the construction of 550 ft. high earth and rockf ill dam; raising the embankment by 28 feet of Prado Dam,...

Three-Dimensional Numerical Model for Fish Bypass Studies
This paper describes a numerical model developed for evaluating different options for fish bypass systems at Wanapum Dam on the Columbia River, WA. The model predicts the complex patterns...
