Computerized Decision-Guidance System for Management of the Trent River Multireservoir System
A computer simulation model has been implemented for a complex multireservoir system, composed of 44 reservoirs and 52 channels. The model is designed in modular form to forecast inflows,...

Effects on Reservoir Water Quality Caused by Changes in Inflow Plume Hydrodynamics
In this paper, the effects of environmental changes on the hydrodynamic behavior of the Las Vegas Wash inflow into Lake Mead are discussed from the view-point of water quality. It is hypothesized...

Hydropower Analysis Using Electronic Spreadsheets
A sequential streamflow routing procedure is recommended to overcome the inadequacy of the conventional duration curve analysis, especially in cases involving multiple intakes for capturing...

Channel Routing for Improved Flood Control
Lake Wappapello, located on the St. Francis River in southeastern Missouri, is operated by the St. Louis District (SLD) Corps of Engineers for purposes of flood control and recreation....

Modeling Fresh Water Inflow to an Estuary

Reservoir Safe Yield Evaluation Using Simulation
The safe yield available from surface water impoundments serving the City of Portsmouth, Virginia, was evaluated, and the sensitivity of the reservoir system to several factors was investigated....

Comprehensive Rehabilitation Results From Stege Sanitary District
Seven sewer agencies, including Stege Sanitary District, in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area embarked on a 20-year capital improvement program in 1987. The 300 million construction...

Use of In-Place Lateral Reconstruction for Correction of Infiltration/Inflow
Extensive sewer collection system rehabilitation programs have done much and will continue to correct infiltration/inflow problems. However, re-evaluation of some of the earlier projects...

Load-Detention Efficiencies in a Dry-Pond Basin
Inflow and outflow to a dry-pond detention basin in Topeka, Kansas, were monitored for 19 storms during a 14-month period. Samples of runoff were collected automatically at two inflow...

Freshwater Inflow Requirements of a Texas Estuary
The objective of this study is to estimate the amount and scheduling of freshwater inflows required to maintain fishery productivity, especially shrimp, in Matagorda Bay, Texas. To estimate...

Development and Implementation of a Private Sector Infiltration/Inflow Removal Program

Guidelines for I/I Analyses and SSES Studies

A Stochastic-Conceptual Reservoir Inflow Forecasting Model
The development of a method to improve real-time forecasting of reservoir inflows for the purpose of minimizing water loss through spillage is presented. Streamflow forecasts are computed...

Application of a Stochastic Hydrology Model
This paper presents the development and application of a multi-site, multi-season stochastic hydrology model for the Sacramento Valley portion of the Central Valley of California. The...

Interaction Between the Technical and Political Processes in Solving Flooding Problems at the Great Salt Lake, Utah
The Great Salt Lake occupies the lowest point in a drainage basin of approximately 22,000 mi**2 (57000 km**2). Inflows to the lake occur as surface runoff, groundwater flows, and precipitation...

Algorithms for Automatic Control of Diversion Dams
The application of local automatic control for the releases from a diversion dam that has intermittent river inflow is limited. For this case, it is better to install a remote monitoring...

Physical and Chemical Data Needs for Design
The problems and deficiencies in the existing characterisation and evaluation of urban stormwater runoff quality are examined through discussion of adopted and proposed design criteria...

Integrated Operation of the Ottawa River System
Several years ago, an integrated operating process was developed in response to specific problems on the Ottawa River. The operating process involves several public-sector organizations...

Elimination of Tidal Inflow—Bridgeport, CT
Using a program of sewer gauging, chloride sampling, sewer system analysis and treatment plant record review, it was determined that Bridgeport's old tide gates allowed 19...

Conveyance Losses Due to Reservoir Releases
Three natural streams in Wyoming were studied in order to estimate incremental conveyance losses associated with incremental increases in stream flow. For each study area, all surface...
