Recent Advances In Well Hydraulics
Most books and papers on well hydraulics are mostly or entirely aquifer hydraulics. The phrase, 'well hydraulics,' implies a study of the flow into and within a well proper. There has...

U-234/U-238 Ratio: Qualitative Estimate of Groundwater Flow in Rocky Flats Monitoring Wells

How Many Observation Wells Does it Take to Find a Groundwater Contamination Plume?
A Bayesian data worth framework is developed to balance the benefits and costs of data collection. In addition to Bayesian decision analysis, tools from Monte Carlo simulation, numerical...

The Performance of Unconfined Hollow Fiber Membranes as Pipe Flow and Mixed Flow Aerators
Unconfined gas permeable membranes situated within mixed reactors are currently being evaluated as a viable technology for gas transfer. The use of sealed hollow fiber membranes that are...

Pilot Test on Groundwater Organics Removal by Low-Pressure Membranes
A 1-year membrane pilot study has been performed to evaluate disinfection-byproduct (DBP) precursors and color removal by low-pressure membranes from groundwater with color values up to...

A Probability Based Approach to the Design and Operation of Soil Vapor Extraction Systems
Soil vapor extraction (SVE) or soil venting is related with Monte Carlo simulation of critical soil characteristics. The correlation yielded a probability based nomograph that may be utilized...

In Situ Treatment of VOCs by Recirculation Technologies
Confronted with contaminated land from the world wars and the postwar industrialization period, German researchers and practicing professionals have worked to develop processes for effective...

Fate/Transport Modeling and Remediation of Contaminated Plume at Vance Airforce Base
Air Training Command (ATC) at Vance Air Force Base (VAFB) is responsible for implementing the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) according to the Comprehensive Environmental Response,...

Groundwater Development and Related Issues
Optimum development and management of ground water resources requires consideration of all elements of the groundwater system and their inter-relations with total hydrologic cycle along...

A Mechanism of Pool Formation and Maintenance in Forest Streams
Laboratory and field investigations illustrate a hydraulic mechanism responsible for the formation and maintenance of pools associated with large, in-channel obstructions in forest streams....

Investments in the Future
The projects that earned the 1994 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Awards of Merit were improvements to the nations transportation and environmental infrastructures. On the outskirts...

America's Pavements: World's Longest Bathtubs
Pavements are the most unusual structures designed by civil engineers. Water flows through their tops, bottoms and sides but because pavements are relatively flat, flows out again very...

Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Relief Wells
The U.S. Army Engineer District, Vicksburg has developed an expedient method of rehabilitating arrays of large numbers of gravity flowing relief wells located along the toe of dams using...

General Design and Construction Considerations for Remedial Seepage Control
All earth and rock-fill dams are subject to seepage through the embankment, foundation and abutments. Methods for remedial seepage control include storage restriction, grouting, upstream...

Hydrogeochemical Site Investigations by Teollisuuden Voima Oy, Finland
Groundwater samples collected from cored boreholes (500-1000 m), borehole wells and multilevel piezometers in crystalline bedrock have been characterized and classified. The reference...

Research at Howard University on Retardation of Radionuclides by Sorption Processes During Host Rock—Ground Water Interactions
Extensive sorption measurements were made over a period of several years, of major radionuclides in J-13 Well water with Yucca Mountain tuff samples. Most of these measurements were single...

Fresno/Clovis Water Management Plan
The Fresno/Clovis Metropolitan Area (FCMA) in California has historically relied solely on untreated, undisinfected groundwater as a source of potable water to serve 500,000 people. Contamination...

Computerized Data Processing and Geographic Information Systems Applications for Development of a 3-Dimensional Groundwater Flow Model
A 3-dimensional numerical groundwater flow model was developed for a 100 square mile area located in the Santa Clara Valley, California. The model development relied upon data base and...

Technical and Organizational Constraints on Surface and Groundwater Irrigation in Small-Holder Areas of S. Asia
Variable irrigation supply and the independent character of the S. Asian small-holder combine to present a difficult problem in irrigation management. Attempts to introduce advanced technology...

Coupled Simulation-Optimization Approach to Wellhead Protection Area Delineation to Minimize Contamination of Public Ground-Water Supplies
A loosely coupled simulation-optimization procedure is used to determine the steady-state pumping rates for individuals wells in a multiple well municipal wellfield that result in the...
