A Statewide Economic Optimization Model for California II: Model and Results
(No paper) Traditionally simulation models have been used for multi-reservoir operation studies. More recently deterministic optimization models have been used to identify promising alternatives...

Dynamic Groundwater Remediation Design with Genetic Algorithms
In groundwater remediation design it has been shown that dynamic policies, in which the pumping strategies may vary throughout the remediation period, can result in more cost-effective...

Optimization of the Aquifer Remediation Costs and Design with Pulsed Pumping
(No paper) Pump-and-treat is a common technique for the remediation of contaminated aquifers. However, slow kinetic mass transfer at sites contaminated with organic compounds may reduce...

A Risk-Based Approach to Subsurface NORM Disposal
(No paper) Naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) has become an environmental concern for the petroleum industry. NORM scales results when naturally occurring radium co-precipitates...

A Decision Support System for Assisting Operation of Artificial Recharge Systems
A series of simulation and optimization models analyzing artificial recharge systems have been linked within a decision support system (DSS) with a graphical interface. The model includes...

Theoretical and Empirical Implications of Increasing Block Rates
(No paper) The U.S. Army disposed chemical agents, laboratory materials, and unexploded ordnance at the O-Field landfill from before World War II until at least the 1950s. Soil, ground...

Impacts of Global Climate Change upon a Regional Aquifer System in the Northeastern United States
(No paper) The Charles River Basin is a major water resource in eastern Massachusetts. It used for a variety of purposes including water supply, industrial cooling, waste disposal, flood...

Using Indirect Potable Reuse to Provide New Water Supplies in Resource-Limited Regions
(No paper) Historically, water resources needed for potable use have been derived from readily-accessible surface and groundwater supplies of freshwater origin because such supplies can...

The City of Tempe, Arizona, Rio Salado Town Lake Groundwater Management Plan
(No paper) The City of Tempe's Rio Salado Project is a mixed-use economic development project located in the Salt River channel between McClintock Drive and Priest Drive in the City of...

Progress and Future Direction to Improve Arizona's Reclaimed Wastewater Reuse Program
(No paper) The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is undertaking a major revision of its reclaimed wastewater reuse program in response to recommendations made by a citizens...

Water Quality in the Sierra Vista Subbasin, Southeastern Arizona: A Baseline for the Future
As part of the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Water-Quality Assessment program, water-quality studies were completed in the Sierra Vista subbasin in southeastern Arizona during...

Reversal of Historic Water Level Decline Has Surprising Consequences
(No paper) This paper discusses the causes of the water level rise and options available to the building owner to deal with both the rising water table and VOC contamination....

Ground-Water Quality in Basins with Minimal Urban Development, Arizona
Ground-water quality data (191796) from 2,013 wells in 16 alluvial basins that have minimal urban development, were used to determine the effect of nonurban factors on ground-water quality...

Under Pressure
The Arrowhead East and West contracts for the Inland Feeder water conveyance system being built in California consist of 51,500 ft (15,700 m) of tunnels that cross the San Andreas Fault...
