Development of a Monitoring Program and Vegetative Restoration Project in a Mississippi River Bendway
The Dry Bayou-Thompson Bend area is located on the right descending bank of the Mississippi River between river miles 4. 5 (7. 2 kilometers) and 30. 0 (48. 3 kilometers) above the confluence...

Drought Analysis in the Ohio River Basin
This study formulates the drought series, including drought occurrence time, duration, and deficit volume by the use of daily streamflows and a tracer level of one-half mean value. The...

A New Method for Synthesizing a Six Hour Unit Hydrograph
A new methodology was devised that would use readily available basin physical parameters for the determination of unit graphs in undeveloped and ungaged areas. Rather than using small...

Modelmania
The idea that model testing could be useful in planning for the control of water in rivers and other waterways received little support in this country until John R. Freeman's...

Non-Federal Development at Corps Projects: Ohio River Division Experience
The paper presents the recent experience of the Ohio River Division of the Corps of Engineers (ORD) in non-federal development of the hydropower potential at existing Corps projects under...

Navigation Channel Design for Safe and Efficient Ship Transit
The U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) recently conducted a hydraulic model investigation of the western portion of Cleveland Harbor, Ohio. This study provided data...

Hydrogeologic Investigation of the Chillicothe, Ohio Landfill
A hydrogeologic investigation of a municipal waste landfill determined that the local surface and ground water are being polluted. Water quality monitoring and aerial photography were...

The Revitalization of Toledo's Waterfront
This paper traces the revitalization of Toledo's Maumee riverfront through a public/private cooperative effort that has spanned more than a decade. The development and funding...

Studies of Long-Term Water Losses
The water-loss time series are formulated for the studied watersheds in the Ohio River Basin through the use of the law of water balance to the system inputs and corresponding outputs....

Water Resources Applications of OCAP--Ohio's CNRIS
The Ohio Capability Analysis Program (OCAP) is a computer-based natural resources information system (CNRIS) operated since 1973 by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The three...

Economics of Ditch Maintenance in Northwestern Ohio
A history of drainage and settlement in the Black Swamp of Northwestern Ohio is presented. The Ohio Ditch Law and county ditch maintenance program is explained. An economic comparison...

Real-Time Monitoring for Ohio Basin Water Management
The Ohio River Division (ORD) of the Corps of Engineers operates 77 reservoirs in this basin for the purposes of flood control, conservation, hydropower, low flow augmentation, water supply,...

Real-Time Flood Forecasting on Small Computers
A real-time, rainfall-runoff, flood forecast model, developed by the Corps of Engineers Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC), was applied to two of tributary basins in the Ohio River System....

Analysis of Cracking of I79 Bridge at Neville Island
A large crack was discovered to form in a girder of the I-79 Glenfield Bridge over the back channel of the Ohio River near Pittsburgh on January 28, 1977. A section of the girder containing...
