Rehabilitation of the Historic Ocoee 1 Hydro Power Plant
The Ocoee 1 Hydro Plant is located on the Ocoee River 16 miles east of Cleveland, Tennessee. Built by the East Tennessee Power Company, it was placed in commercial operation in 1912. There...

Research for New Water Table Management Systems
Water table management in the form of controlled-drainage and controlled-drainage/subirrigation is a feasible, yet under-utilized, practice in the Atlantic Coast flatwoods, the Ohio River...

Overview of the Ohio Management Systems Evaluation Area
The Ohio Buried Valley Aquifer Management System Evaluation Area (Ohio MSEA) project is part of a regional study developed to investigate the effects of farming systems on productivity,...

Measurement and Analysis of Hydraulic Conductivity Variability of a Heterogeneous Aquifer
The spatial variability of hydraulic conductivity of a shallow alluvial aquifer was investigated using borehole flowmeter measurements. The study was conducted at the site of a large-scale...

Practical Technology Resulting from MADE Research
As is often the case, when theoretical research is performed, practical technology is developed in the process. This has occurred with the Macrodispersion Experiment (MADE) conducted at...

Bridge Inspections Related to Bridge Scour
The failure of the Silver Bridge over the Ohio River in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, on December 15, 1967 resulted in the establishment of the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS)...

Return Velocities Induced by Shallow-Draft Navigation
Return velocities are caused by the displacement effects of vessels as they travel in navigation channels. Numerous return velocity equations have been developed for relatively small channels...

Daily Drought Monitoring by the Use of Existing Hydrologic Records
To manage water efficiently in case of drought, an effective drought monitoring method has been of interest. Drought durations and their conditional probabilities are estimated by applying...

A Simple Empirical Model of Aeration at Navigation Dams
In a study of aeration at 28 dams in the upper Ohio River basin, site-specific least-squares linear regression models were used to describe the dissolved oxygen deficit below each dam...

The River Ice Management (RIM) Program: Developing New Options for Waterways Operations in Winter
Most of the navigable inland waterways of the United States are utilized year-round. In northern portions of this network (mainly parts of the Ohio and Upper Mississippi River basins),...

Overview and Objectives of the Macrodispersion Experiment
TVA is conducting large-scale field experiments to better define movement and dispersion of contaminants in groundwater. This will support groundwater protection by making possible more...

Second Natural-Gradient Tracer Experiment
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has begun a second large-scale groundwater field experiment at the Columbus Groundwater Research test site in Mississippi. This research is a continuation...

Prefabricated Power Plants, Experience and Prospects
This paper presents the prefabrication concept applied to the Greenup (Greenup Locks and Dam, Ohio River, 72 MW, 1982) and the Sydney A. Murray, Jr. (Old River Control Structures, Vidalia,...

Stormwater/Wastewater Management: How an Application Can Drive a GIS
Decision makers are finding that a much-needed application may be the key that drives the creation of a city- or county-wide Geographic Information System (GIS). A start-up GIS developed...

Sediment Impediment to Boat Launching at Miller Park, City of Avon Lake, Ohio
In 1987 a boat launching facility was constructed at Miller Park, in the City of Avon Lake, Lorain County, Ohio (Figure 1). There have been problems with sediment buildup ever since it...

Ohio Northern Undergraduate Computer Applications

Columbus Generic Element Management Concept
The concept for largely autonomous onboard management of the ESA Columbus project elements relies on the automation of operational procedures. Reconfigurable items are commanded in sequence...

Reliability Estimation for Vertical Lift Gate at Emsworth Dam
The lift gates are composed of two horizontal trusses, two vertical girders, seven diaphragms, and two end frames. A critical element in the structural integrity of the lift gate is a...

A Living Master Plan for Combined Sewer Syetems

A Method for Estimating Peak Flows from Small Agricultural Watersheds
An attempt was made to develop a method for estimating peak runoff from agricultural watersheds by analyzing precipitation and runoff data, and incorporating the results into a procedure...
