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...

Stormwater Management Plan Updated for Climate System Changes
When large watershed stormwater management plans are updated, climate system change factors due to global warming effects should be considered. Climate system changes may cause changes...

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,...

Flood Control Studies for Arizona Communities
Severe flooding in the winter of 1992/1993 produced severe flooding across the State of Arizona. Damages were widespread and significant. Total public and private damages are estimated...

Floodplain Analysis of the Lower Santa Margarita River in Camp Pendleton Marine Air Base, California
Floods of 1993 caused extensive flooding of the Santa Margarita River, and significant damage to Camp Pendleton. A floodplain analysis was performed including an assessment of recent flood...

At-A-Station Temporal Variations in Flow under Drought and Flood Conditions and Associated Sediment Problems
The way flow variations take place with time under drought and flood conditions, in comparison with normal flow condition, has been investigated along with the related sediment transport...

Inundation Studies in Case of Failure of King Talal Dam
In this paper a brief description of the studies is presented and the computed results are summarized. During running the program, several difficulties were encountered. These problems...

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...

Flood Control in the Brazilian Electric System Reservoirs at Parana River Basin
This paper describes the experience of the Brazilian Electric System in flood control at Parana River basin, and presents the factors that required the consideration of flood impacts in...

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,...

Impacts due to Density Current Deposition in Reservoirs
Different flow pafterns of density currents in reservoirs are discussed. In delta region, lateral density currents from non-stratified flow in the main channel occurs resulting in floodplain...

Expected Moments Alogrithms for Flood Frequency Analysis
The Expected Moments Algorithm (EMA) is a new but conceptually simple approach for the treatment of nontraditional data in flood frequency analysis. Nontraditional data includes censored...

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...

Aspects of River House Cleaning during Floods
In spite of all the destructive forces of floods, the washing and scouring of polluted bottom deposits during spring floods gives the rivers a new start at the beginning of what is usually...

Combined Flood Hazard Mitigation Techniques for Comprehensive Planning— The Saugus River Coastal Flood Risk Reduction Plan
The development of an alternative Coastal Flood Risic Reduction Plan for the Saugus River was initiated by the Executive Office of Environinental Affairs (EOEA) of Massachusetts in April...

Computing Flood Damage Reduction Accomplishment
Following flood events, the damage reduced by a federal flood damage reduction project must be computed to inform the public and assist officials in making decisions. This paper will describe...
