Simulation of Oxygen Dynamics in the Vadose Zone
A microcomputer model VIP (Vadose Zone Interactive Processes) was developed as an extension of the RITZ model to provide a mathematical description of land treatment systems for the disposal...

Sensitivity of Non-Point Source Models to Net Rainfall
A sensitivity analysis of the ANSWERS model was conducted to explore the possible impact on model outputs of discretizing rainfall input data into short time increments of various durations....

Prediction of Overland Phosphorus Transport Using a Phosphorus Enrichment Ratio
The Guelph model to evaluate the effects of Agricultural Management Systems on Erosion, Sedimentation, and Phosphorus yield (GAMESP) of Rousseau et al. was used to calibrate the phosphorus...

Application of DDDP for Optimal Daily Operation of the Niagara Generating System
This paper describes the application of Discrete Differential Dynamic Programming (DDDP) to determine the optimal operation of Ontario Hydro's Niagara Generating System, on...

Utilization of the Ottawa River Regulation Modeling System (MORRO)
The MORRO model was developed in Canada for use by the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board (ORRPB) to integrate the operation of the Ottawa River during the spring freshet season, when...

Borden Field Data and Multivariate Geostatistics
A large-scale field experiment on natural gradient transport of solutes in groundwater was conducted in an unconfined sand aquifer in Borden, Ontario by extensive monitoring after the...

Ontario's Sioux Narrows Bridge

Mini/Micro Hydro Applications in Remote Off-grid Areas of Ontario
This paper outlines the potential for remote off-grid small hydro development in Ontario and the present incentives that exist to develop these resources. Estimated costs of development...

Small Hydro Analysis and Reporting Program
The Ontario Ministry of Energy initiated a project to develop an analysis program based upon metric measures and Canadian costs. The Ministry of Energy of the Province of Ontario has been...

Studies of Fish Protection Methods at Hydroelectric Plants
Five largely untested but economical fish-protection systems were tested at sites throughout North America. The process of selecting laboratory and field test sites was completed at the...

Environmental Appraisal of Small Hydro Projects in Ontario
Despite a large interest from the developing community and the aid of Ontario's Small Hydro Encouragement Program (Ministry of Energy 1986) which is administrated by the Ontario...

Operational Flexibility—A Precious Commodity
This discussion is about Operational Flexibility, as it applies to the generating resources of a large electricity system. The author discusses the situation at Ontario Hydro, operationally...

Trends and Emerging Issues: A Longitudinal Study of Government Agencies' Perceptions of Great Lakes Water Resources and Related Issues
The perceptions of government agencies with jurisdiction over Great Lakes' shoreline has changed over time with respect to important issues related to water quality and a...

Quality Assurance Monitoring of a Large Clay Liner
The Keele Valley Landfill at Maple, Ontario, consists of a 99 ha (245 acre) facility to serve the Metropolitan Toronto area. The landfill is located in a former sand and gravel pit, with...

Multiple Presence Reduction Factors for Bridges
This paper reviews the multiple presence reduction factors specified in the AASHTO and Ontario codes, and provides a method by which these factors can be established in relation to volume...

Safety Impacts of Installing Pedestrian Crosswalks
At-grade pedestrian crossovers (PXO's) have been installed at about 700 locations in Metropolitan Toronto to assist pedestrians in crossing busy streets at minimal delay to...

Taming Lively Buildings
Mechanical damping systems are increasingly being used for controlling dynamic responses of tall buildings. Several types of dampers are described, and compared, beginning with the three...

Remote Sensing to Assess Effects of Hydroelectric Development
Planning for hydroelectric development of rivers in the province of Ontario, Canada requires extensive environmental evaluation and assessment. To test the feasibility of using digital...

Dredged Material Disposal in the Lower Great Lakes
The Buffalo District Corps of Engineers is responsible for dredging the harbors in Lakes Erie and Ontario. Approximately 2,000,000 cubic yards (1,529,000 cubic meters) of material are...
