We Struck Water! Discovery of Artesian Groundwater Solves A 50-Year-Old Landslide Puzzle
Some unstable slopes fail dramatically, but most can be characterized by gradual, if not monotonously slow, movements. Yet these latter situations can pose a dilemma when a temporary repair is much simpler...

Student Solutions (part of "Teaching Cars to Drive")
A multidisciplinary team of students from the University of Michigan worked at the Willow Run site in 2014 on a constructed wetlands system to help remediate contaminated groundwater....

Three Sources, One Quality Product
To keep pace with increasingly stringent regulations and growing demand, Lee County Utilities in southwest Florida recently constructed a new, larger drinking water facility that treats three separate,...

Oroville Dam Spillway Incident: Putting Community Safety First While Investigating the Cause
The Oroville Dam, and its associated reservoir and hydropower plant facility, is located on the Feather River in Northern California and is owned and operated by the State of California, Department of...

Ground Improvement for Underground Construction: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Underground construction is "special" because the work may be performed at great depths and under high groundwater pressures. All too often, it seems to take place in urban areas where there is limited...

Becoming Greener with Green Sand: An Iron Castings Company Devises an Environmentally Friendly Liner System Reusing Foundry Byproduct
Metalcasting is one of the oldest methods of recycling—humans have a few millennia worth of experience with the technique—but today's industry still battles public preconceptions...

Summary, Conclusions, and Recommendations
Civil engineers have responsibilities for the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of physical infrastructures. These infrastructures include all types of buildings,...

Design Considerations Common To All Permeable Pavements
Impervious cover in watersheds without controls result in increased stormwater runoff and decreased groundwater recharge in response to rainfall events. This increased runoff can be the...

Hydrologic and Hydraulic Design Methods
Computational methods for hydrologic analysis, hydraulic functions, and treatment capacity of permeable pavements vary depending on the complexity of the design and level of detail in...

Quality Assurance/Quality Control
The contract between the purchaser and the supplier shall state the responsibilities of each party and the conditions under which the work will be accepted or rejected....

Ground Freezing in a Congested Urban Area
Artificial ground freezing is a method of providing temporary earth support and ground water control for deep excavations and tunnels. The technique has been used for over 100 years in...
