The Chicago-Kansas City Tollway: Lessons for Future Projects and Policy
The paper discusses an innovative mixed public-private financing plan and implementation plan for an investor-owned toll road connecting Chicago and Kansas City. The two plans utilize...

A Reservoir Yield Evaluation in an Arid Climate
Yield calculations rarely can be more accurate than roughly plus or minus twenty percent. The same uncertainty is dramatically greater in arid climates where the average annual runoff...

Transmission Losses, Flood Peaks, and Groundwater Recharge
Abstractions of streamflow in ephemeral stream channels from infiltration in the channel beds and banks are called transmission losses. These losses are important because water is 'lost'...

Estimating Maximum Sustainable Instream Flow During Drought in the Lower Kansas River Basin

Kansas State Proves Bigger Isn't Always Better

Partnership in Environmental Design for Brush Creek Flood Control
Brush Creek drains a highly urbanized area in metropolitan Kansas City. A large physical model was used to develop a channel modification design for flood control. The Parks and Recreation...

Evaluation of a 50-Year Old Barge Dock on the Missouri River
The installation of a large crane on an existing barge dock on the Missouri River in Kansas City, Kansas required an evaluation of the dock system stability. The dock was constructed of...

Water Assurance Districts: A New Concept in Local Government
Society has long utilized local governmental units to implement numerous water management functions. This paper discusses a new and relatively unique local organizational structure now...

Methods in Determining Crop Water Usage
A study was conducted to evaluate different methods of measuring soil moisture and crop water usage in Southwest Kansas. Soil moisture readings taken by the neutron gauge were verified...

Instrumentation for a Dry-Pond Detention Study
A 12.3-acre, fully urbanized, residential land-use catchment was instrumented by the U. S. Geological Survey in Topeka, Kansas. Hydraulic instrumentation for flow measurement includes...

Kansas State Researchers are Giant Killers

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...

Bureau of Reclamation's High Plains States Ground Water Recharge Program
The Bureau of Reclamation is conducting a two-phase program to demonstrate the feasibility of recharging declining aquifers in the 17 western states. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS),...

Perceiving Toxic Chemicals in Fishing Environments
The perception of toxic chemicals in the fishing environments by anglers was examined in Kansas and Michigan. The main findings of the study were: 1) There appears to be a small, but significant...

Kansas City is Up to Date Again

Hydrologic Design Criteria for Dams with Equal Reliability
Appropriateness of design criteria which require using the same Antecedent Moisture Condition (AMC) throughout Kansas for sizing dams and emergency spillways was examined. AMC values which...

KSLAD: A Traffic Accident Data Analysis Program
Originally developed to run within the dBASE III (tm) operating environment, Kansas Local Accidents Database (KSLAD) has since been upgraded to operate under dBASE III Plus (tm). Work...
