In October and December, 1994, an external inspection was performed on the County Sanitation Districts of Orange County's (Districts) ocean outfall. This presentation describes...

Santa Ana River Mainstem Project
The Santa Ana River Mainstem Project consists of seven major features including the construction of 550 ft. high earth and rockf ill dam; raising the embankment by 28 feet of Prado Dam,...

The Caspian Sea Transgression (Environmental Medical Aspect)
From 1978 until 1994 the level of the Caspian Sea has risen by 220 cm, in 1994 by 30 cm. The study of environmental medical situa tion in the Russian zone of the sea transgression impact...

Eastern San Joaquin County Groundwater Resource Planning Model Development and Calibration
An Integrated Groundwater Surface Water Model (IGSM) has been developed for the Eastern San Joaquin County in the Central Valley of California to evaluate the future water resources management...

Comparison of Worst-Case and Probabilistic Approaches to Ocean Outfall Mixing Zone Analysis
Two approaches have been used for ocean outfall mixing zone analysis: worst-case approach and probabilistic approach. This paper discusses some advantages and disadvantages of the worst-case...

Mitigation Measures for Eroding Muddy Shores
A criterion for the stability of muddy coasts is proposed, accounting for bottom resistance, hydrodynarnic forcing and sediment supply. Although qualitative, this criterion provides a...

Wetland Restoration in Southern North Sea Coastal Areas: The Experience of Britain and The Netherlands
Over the past 500 years, extensive reclamation of tidal wetland areas in the lowlands surrounding the Southern North Sea has taken place. In the Netherlands, reclamation has been an essential...

Two- and Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamic Modeling of the Salton Sea, California
The Salton Sea, the largest surface water body in California, faces a myriad of problems related to rapidly changing water levels, rising salinity, accelerated eutrophication, fish kills,...

Near Field Modeling
Results of near field modeling of the wastefield formed by the Sand Island, Honolulu, ocean sewage outfall are presented. Over 20,000 simulations were run with the mathematical model RSB...

Application of a Three-Dimensional Model to Assess Seawater Intrusion in the South San Diego Embayment
The San Diego Formation is a Pliocene through Quaternary age aquifer occupying the southwestern-most part of San Diego County. Though the formation is widespread, thicknesses of up to...

Floodplain Management in Los Angeles County
Los Angeles is located in a geologically young area of the western United States. It is characterized by highly erodible, steep mountains and flat alluvial plains. Located in a semi-arid...

Sediment Erosion Rate in the Baltimore Harbor
In-situ erosion experiments were conducted at four selected sites in the Baltimore harbor in May 1995 using the VIMS Sea Carousel. The measurements showed that the erosion rate decreased...

Adhesion Kinetics of Fuel Oil #6 and Oil-in-Water Emulsions on Marine Sediments under Turbulent Mixing Conditions
Oil spilled in the marine environment is subject to a great variety of physical, chemical and biological processes, which determine its ultimate fate in the aquatic environment. Many of...
