Is There a Future for Vacuum Sewers?
Vacuum sewers collect and transport sanitary sewage using pressure difference rather than gravity as the primary motive force. Compared to conventional gravity sewers, they use smaller...

Efficiency Testing of Water Wells
In the operation of a water well, the difference between the water level in the well before pumping starts and after it has been pumping for a period of time is termed 'drawdown.'...

The Hydraulic and Hydrological Interactions Between Urban Sewer Systems and Receiving Waters at High Discharges
In the transition region from sewer to river, the penetration of river flood water into the sewer network or the hydraulic overload of small rivers due to sewer system discharges, may...

Flow Field Near an Inland Navigation Tow
As a vessel moves through a body of water, disturbances are created in the form of altered water levels such as waves or drawdown and altered flow fields such as increased velocities and...

Delineation of Ordinary High Water
'Ordinary high water' is used in a court of law to delineate the extent of land ownership of adjacent riparian owners on navigable rivers. The most appropriate...

Modeling Not By the Numbers
A model is likely to be the tool for making predictions of the ecological impact of an engineering decision. However, ecologists often find it difficult under pressures of time and lack...
