Groundwater Loadings of Pesticides From Chemigation: A Gleams Model Simulation
This paper describes how, with slight modifications, the GLEAMS model (Groundwater Loading Effects of Agricultural Management Systems) was used to represent chemigation for herbicides,...

The Alabama Rainfall-Runoff Model, ARRM
ARRM consists of a conceptual state-space model which is cast in a stochastic framework. It uses the W.H. Green and C.A. Ampt method for infiltration, exponential decay for interflow and...

Stochastic Control of Hydropower Systems
A two-level stochastic control method is presented for the real-time operation of hydropower projects. The first level assumes fixed turbine discharges and utilizes probabilistic inflow...

Estimating Urban Flood-Frequency Characteristics
Methods in use by the U.S. Geological Survey to estimate flood-frequency characteristics for urban watersheds are compared with estimates based on the Soil Conservation Service TR-55 model....

Storage Reallocation in Hydropower Projects of North Georgia
Over the past 40 years, the Corps of Engineers has built nine multiple purpose storage projects in Georgia, with hydroelectric power production as a major purpose. Six of the projects...

Modal Split Analysis of an Airport Circulation System with APM and Moving Sidewalk Facilities

Building the Perfect Playpen
Today, the stadium itself has become almost as important as the teams playing the game. Eschewing the standard cookie-cutter design of the 60s, clients and owners generally have a laundry...

Pumped-Storage Project Site Selection
The paper presents a case history in the selection of a site for a large pumped-storage project for Oglethorpe Power Corporation. The case history illustrates how a large number of potential...

Dam Safety Emergency Action Plans—A TVA-State Responsibility
The Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety requires each dam owner to prepare and maintain emergency action plans (EAP) for each of structure. These plans are necessary (1) to identify problems...

Injecting an Oxygen Fix
Seasonal dissolved oxygen deficiencies are an old problem in hydropower discharges from deep impoundments. At the Richard B. Russell Dam near Savannah, Georgia, an innovative solution...

Iowa's Experience with Various Types of Pipe in Natural Gas Service
The Utilities Division, Iowa Department of Commerce, is responsible for the rate, service, and safety regulation of utility companies in the State of Iowa. This paper will summarize a...

Monitoring of a Gas Main During Construction
This paper focuses on the task of formulating and implementing a viable plan for protecting an existing gas main located in a construction site where construction activities include excavation,...

Modeling Pesticide Metabolite Transport with Gleams
The GLEAMS model (Groundwater Loading Effects of Agricultural Management Systems) was modified to simulate the generation and degradation of pesticide metabolites. Translocation of the...

Sedimentation and Water Quality in TVA's Ocoee Reservoirs
This paper reviews and summarizes sedimentation and water quality characteristics of the Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) three Ocoee Reservoirs located in Polk County in...

Simulation of Long Period Ground Motions for a Large New Madrid Earthquake
Ground motions for a large New Madrid earthquake are simulated to provide response spectra in the period range of 0.5-20 seconds for hard rock sites at Chicago and Atlanta. The ground...

Secretary of Interior v. California
The issue of whether Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) lease sales were subject to consistency review under section 307(c) (1) of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) was the focus of litigation...

Ocean Space Encompassed by Oil and Gas Activities
