Performance of an Artesian Glacial Drift Aquifer with Induced Recharge
The City of Kalamazoo, Michigan, has constructed induced recharge facilities at sites of several of its twenty-one well fields as part of a program for supplying potable water to Kalamazoo...

Optimizing Limited Water Resources Through Conjunctive Use
The City of Santa Barbara is faced with potential water supply deficiency caused by decreasing supplies and a mild increase in demand. This paper discusses some of the results of a study...

Artificial Recharge to the Floridan Aquifer System, Orlando Area, Central Florida
Approximately 400 drainage wells exist in Orange County, central Florida. The rate of recharge through drainage wells is limited by the rate of surface flow to the wells; the hydraulic...

Ground Water Monitoring for Resource Management
Management of the ground water resources provided by the multi-layered aquifers underlying Orange County, California has required a new approach to ground water monitoring. The Orange...

Deepwell Infiltration in the North-Holland Dune Area
Deep well infiltration now generally is considered the cue for the future extensions of artificial ground water recharge in or outside the dunes. The Provincial Waterworks of North-Holland...

Techniques for Delineating Subsurface Organic Contamination: A Case Study
Selection of techniques to detect and map subsurface organic contamination depends on the type of source, contamination, and hydrogeologic setting. Ideally, an investigator, manager, or...

Best Management Practices for Point and Nonpoint Sources of Groundwater Contamination
Management strategies have included regulations to guide or limit development in aquifer recharge areas and in the capture zones of public wellfields, engineering requirements to minimize...

The Delineation and Management of Wellhead Protection Areas
The delineation and protection of a management zone around specific wells or wellfields will undoubtedly become more common as the 1986 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act are implemented...

Restoring Chesapeake Bay Living Resources
Following nearly ten years of study and analysis of the degraded Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, a new emphasis has emerged in 1986 - linkage of water quality to living resource problems, with...

Satellite-Tracked Buoy Activities in Saudi Arabia
During the pollution threat on the Gulf caused by the collapse of the NOWRUZ oil field well in February 1983, the Meteorology and Environmental Administration (MEPA) established an Oil...

Spatial and Temporal Variability of Drilling Reserve Pit Fluids on the North Slope (abstract)
Reserve pits are constructed in connection with drilling activities to provide a convenient and safe disposal site for waste drilling muds and cuttings. During the winter months at Prudhoe...

Ocean Space Encompassed by Oil and Gas Activities
The implications of exploratory and production drilling depth records from 1947 to the present are considered in terms of ocean area involved and coastal management. Technological changes...

A Survey of Selected Arctic Petroleum Drilling Locations in the Alaskan Coastal Arctic Region (abstract)
There exists in the central coastal region of arctic Alaska, a number of drill site locations which were used to explore for oil and gas in the 1960's and 1970's....

The DST Well: Its Importance and Lessons Learned
A Deep Stratigraphic Test (DST) well is a unique source of stratigraphic information; and provides critical data on drilling conditions, logistics, materials; and subsurface conditions...

Arctic Wetland Losses: When Should Compensation be Required?
The paper discusses problems facing biological impact assessment and mitigation planning for petroleum exploration and oilfield development on the Arctic Coastal Plain or North Slope of...

Oil and Fisheries—Conflict or Cooperation
The Grand Banks of Newfoundland are one of the richest fishing grounds in the world. The proposed Hibernia oil field development will impact on this resource. Recommendations have been...

Optimum State Strategies Regarding Oil and Gas Exploration and Development on the Outer Continental Shelf
In anticipation of the federal oil and gas lease initiative, the Washington Department of Ecology selected the consulting firm Cogan, Sharpe, Cogan of Portland, Oregon to conduct an OCS...

Can Alaskan Caribou and Oil Development Coexist?
The coastal area near Prudhoe Bay, Alaska is becoming increasingly industrialized as oil development continues. This same coastal area is an important area to a caribou herd known as the...

Sensitive Area Assessment on Canada's Frontier Lands
Sensitive area assessment (SAA) has a role in environmental impact assessment and as a resource management tool for oil and gas activities on Canada's frontier lands, onshore...

Contributions of Oil and Gas Environmental Reviews to Coastal Zone Management in Canada
