Misunderstanding Computer Data Accuracy Leads to Project Rework: Two Case Studies

Preparing for Repair (Available only in Geoenvironmental Special Issue)
The Sacramento River Water Treatment Plant, Sacramento, Calif., was built in 1924 and hadn't been upgraded since 1958. In 1996, the city of Sacramento, the owner of the plant,...

Manufactured Gas Plants: Yesterday's Pride, Today's Liability
Manufactured gas plants were the pride of the industrialized world until cleaner, natural gas pipelines were built beginning in the 1930s. Most gas plants had closed by the 1960s, leaving...

Rehab by Helicopter
The City of San Diego's 86-year old Dulzura Conduit has been in almost continuous operation since it first opened in 1909. But by 1984 flow had been reduced to less than 15...

Plumbing the Quality of a Sewer System
Consultants in Phoenix were recently charged with assessing the city's sewer system, many feet of which were laid without plastic lining to protect them. Developing a capital...

Dam Foundation Erosion Study: The Design of a Sidewall Orifice for Simulation of a Free Trajectory Overtopping Jet
This paper describes the design of a sidewall discharging orifice for simulation of a free trajectory overtopping jet. A sidewall orifice discharges through the sidewall of a pipe. The...

Genetic Algorithm Design of Piped Irrigation Systems
The design of piped irrigation systems is a complex matter. In its simplest form it involves the selection of the sizes of pipes and other hydraulic elements so as to ensure that the varying...

Grade Control Structures for Pipeline Crossings in the Arid Southwest
Pipeline crossings at streams, rivers, and washes are at risk due to bed and bank erosion in the river environment. Buried pipelines may be exposed in the channel bottom by scour of bed...

Design Alternatives for Protection of the Santa Ana River Interceptor Sewer
The Santa Ana River Interceptor Sewer (SARIS) line buried within the floodplain of the Santa Aria River is being threatened by long term degradation of the river bed at the pipeline crossings,...

Protecting Dredged Material Containment Levees along the Houston Ship Channel
This paper describes the background, selection, installation, and performance of the three-dimensional woven geotextile used for erosion protection along 122 meters (400 feet) of levee...

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...

Comprehensive Modelling of Water Distribution Networks
An analyst of a water distribution systems must frequently contend with a host of problems with very different time scales. Traditionally, such concerns have been accommodated by having...
