Management of Water Resources in North America III
Anticipating the 21st Century
This proceedings, Management of Water Resources in North America III, contains fourteen of the papers presented and discussed at the Third...

Optimization and Reservoir Operations for the Missouri River
As demands placed on the operation of the nation's reservoirs increase, the problem of finding the most desirable set of operation plans becomes more difficult and controversial. This...

Effects of Lateral Heading Flow Steadiness on Lateral Spillage
Hourly inflow and spillage rates from three lateral canals in the Imperial Irrigation District in Southern California were measured for seven months and subsequently analyzed to identify...

Design Considerations for Night Storage in Irrigation Systems
Due to the farmer social and economical changes, irrigation during night became rare. Most of the night discharges flow to drains. A design procedure has been developed for storage in...

Water Conservation and Delivery Flexibility in the Imperial Irrigation District Through Lateral Interceptor Systems
The lateral interceptor concept was conceived in the wake of a water conservation effort to reduce several sources of water loss typical of irrigation districts. These sources include...

Agricultural Infrastructure for Urban Irrigation
The Salt River Project (SRP) began as a provider of water for agricultural irrigation. Now most of the lands are urban and receive water distributed by municipalities at high-cost drinking...

Monitoring Water Quality and Use in Colorado
This paper presents the results of a two year study on the impact of irrigation water use on water quality near Greeley, CO. Data on irrigation application efficiency, deep percolation,...

Statewide Consumptive Use Estimates
Methodology for estimating consumptive use and consumptive irrigation requirements on a statewide basis is summarized. The methodolgy has been used to update monthly and seasonal consumptive...

Wastewater Reclamation at Davenport, Washington
The City of Davenport, Washington went through an extended process to update their undersized wastewater treatment and irrigation reclamation systems for municipal wastewater. The process...

Expert Analysis in Regulated Irrigation Canal Modelling
Application of riverine unsteady-flow numerical modelling techniques to problems of flow regulation in irrigation canals invokes the need for careful treatment of some situations not commonly...

A model to describe the fate of agricultural pollutants
The distributed parameter hydrological model CEQUEAU is coupled to nitrogen and pesticide sub-models to study agricultural non-point pollution at the watershed level. This developing tool...

Interfacing GIS and Water Quality Models for Agricultural Areas
Agricultural activities significantly impact water quality, including increases in stream sediment, nutrients, pesticides, and salt concentrations from runoff. South Florida is unique...

Performance of Submerged Vanes for Control of Sediment in an Irrigation Canal
Removal of accumulated sediments from irrigation canals is necessary in order to maintain canal capacity. Removal of these sediments may be enhanced by directing and concentrating sediments...

A Better Description of Trap Efficiency for Fine Sediment in Horizontal Settling Basins
Settling basin removes sediment from intake water and enhance the benefit of diversion works. In order to economize construction land and cost as well as for agriculture fertilization...

Resource Implications of Listing Columbia River Basin Salmon Stocks Under the Endangered Species Act
The Columbia River and Snake River dams and reservoirs provide substantial benefits in the Northwest through their operation for hydropower, flood control, irrigation, navigation, and...
