Water-Level Fluctuations and Flow in Tidal Inlets
Equations are derived to describe the water motion in a tidal inlet connecting the ocean with a relatively small basin. The boundary conditions considered are the ocean tide and fresh...

Determining Bank Storage of Lake Mead
By means of a water budget, the bank storage at Lake Mead is evaluated. It is necessary to estimate a part of the inflow to the reservoir. A procedure for making this estimate based on...

Inflow Hydrographs from Large Unconfined Aquifers
A general method is presented for predicting the subsurface lateral inflow hydrograph from large unconfined aquifers into adjacent streams. It is based on grouping the pertinent variables...

Efficiency of Pumping from Small Circular Sumps
Efficiency and minimum safe submergence of a 4-in. vertical turbine tail-water recovery pump in a circular pump are affected by side clearance and inflow velocity, but not by bottom clearance....

High Lift Locks: Some Hydraulic Problems and Solution
The ideal lock would be one in which the inflow is rapidly and evenly distributed throughout the lock chamber area and where all the energy is dissipated outside this chamber. Although...

Stabilization of Fivemile and Muddy Creeks
Steady waste flows from the Riverton Project in central Wyoming increased the annual discharge of two ephemeral streams from 5,000 acre-ft to over 90,000 acre-ft on Fivemile Creek and...

Atmospheric Moisture-Precipitation Relations
Relationships are established between water vapor inflow, precipitable water depth, and surface precipitation, in Illinois, under average and extreme weather conditions. The water vapor...

Prediction of Temperature in Rivers and Reservoirs
Procedure is presented for predicting temperature of various water bodies from weather records, inflow and outflow characteristics, and surface area and volume of body of water; method...

Queuing Theory and Simulation In Reservoir Design
Theory of queues, or waiting lines, and Monte Carlo techniques are applied to problem of selecting optimal design of multi-purpose reservoir; simulation of reservoir system response to...

Theory of queues, or waiting lines, and Monte Carlo techniques are applied to problem of selecting optimal design of multi-purpose reservoir; simulation of reservoir system response to...

Factors Affecting the Useful Life of Reservoirs
Useful life of reservoirs includes length of life and service value; controlling factors in reservoir silting are shown to be capacity-inflow ratio and sediment content of inflow which...

The Peoria Recharge Pit: Its Development and Results
Research on artificial recharge was done in Peoria, Ill, by State Water Survey to find methods for overcoming losses in ground water storage due to overpumpage; method was found to obtain...
