Simulating Radionuclide Transport Away from an Underground Nuclear Test: Linking Non-Isothermal Flow and Mechanistic Reactive Transport
The low-yield (0.75 kiloton) Cambric underground nuclear test situated in alluvium below the water table offers unique perspectives on radionuclide transport in groundwater. The Cambric...

Permits, Surface Water/Groundwater Baseline Sampling, and Analysis of Dewey-Burdock In Situ Uranium Project in Fall River County, South Dakota
Powertech Uranium Corporation has proposed to conduct in situ mining within a uranium enriched ore deposit on the proposed permit area known as the Dewey-Burdock project. The project is...

Hurricane Protection System
This chapter discusses hurricane protection systems. Topics include standard project hurricane, levees and floodwalls, datums and elevations, and interior drainage and pump stations....

Direct Causes of the Catastrophe
This chapter examines direct physical causes of the hurricane protection system failures, including soil strength assessments and pumping station limitations....

Refrigerated Foundations
Refrigeration systems used to cool foundations on frozen ground can be classified as either active or passive, depending on whether external energy is used to power the systems. If pumps,...

Simulation/Optimization Modeling Post-Audits
S/O models have long been used to compute optimal strategies for user-specified optimization problems. It is useful to provide a retrospective of two S/O modeling applications, and how...

Characterization of Interaction of Surface Water and Groundwater in the El Paso Lower Valley of Texas
El Paso is located in the Chihuahua desert and prone to long periods of extreme drought. With the river drought, regional irrigation districts only received 34% and 38%of a full water...

Tapping the Desert
As part of an effort to augment the limited supply of freshwater in El Paso, Texas, engineers and planners are eyeing a new source: desalinated water pumped from beneath the desert floor....

Closing the Loop
By constructing an enormous pipeline system and a new pumping station, the city of Irving will bring a new supply of water to the Dallas-Fort Worth region and improve the reliability of...

Restoring PATH
Service from northern New Jersey to lower Manhattan on the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) commuter rail system will soon be restored thanks to a speedy rehabilitation of tunnels and...

Impact of Ground Water Management on the Hydropattern of Wetlands
In this paper, we examine the effect of altering the pumping rates of a large municipal well field, on the hydropattern of the near by PENSUCO wetland. A flow model developed earlier using...

Rising Tide
In an effort to accommodate a new light-rail system in New Jersey between Camden and Trenton, the state's Department of Transportation began the formidable task of enhancing...

Water for Ahwatukee
Scheduled for completion in August, the South Mountain Water Facilities pipeline will increase drinking water capacity to the community of Ahwatukee Foothills, a rapidly growing south...

Hydrogeology and Irrigated Agriculture
A review of drainage problems and groundwater processes on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley (SJV), California, provides useful perspectives on hydrogeology and irrigated agriculture....

Sedimental Journey
A numerical shoreline evolution model was used to examine the shoreline changes associated with the release of 2.3 million m³ of beach-quality sediment from behind Matilija Dam in Ventura...

Use of Piles and Deep Well Pumping in Slide Stabilization

Returning to the Source
One hundred years ago, Las Vegas was a dry, dusty dot on the map with a population of only 100. The city grew up to become perhaps the gambling capital of the world, and more recently...

A Natural Approach
Before the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan began, the Florida legislature established the Everglades Construction Project (ECP), a $708-million, 10-year program now being implemented...

Airport on the Move
The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is building an automated people mover (APM) system as part of a five-year, $2.6-billion capital development program that includes three...

Coming to the Surface
In the past few years, the coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico and much of Texas have experienced less than normal rainfall and record water demands. During this period, average daily...
