Comparison of Stochastic Programming and Robust Optimization Models for Groundwater Plume Containment
Stochastic optimization models for containing a groundwater contaminant plume through the installation and operation of pumping wells are developed. Two related formulations are presented—stochastic...

Optimal Well Locations for Groundwater Mound Control

Sediment Transport Modeling for the Glen-Colusa Irrigation District Fish Screen Modifications
The Glen-Colusa Irrigation District (GCID) pumping plant is located on an oxbow of the Sacramento River approximately 100 miles north of Sacramento (Figure 1). The existing fish screen...

Optimization of a Ground-Water Injection/Extraction System
This paper describes the application of linear programming to optimize the number, location, and rates of extraction/injection for a pump and treat system at a groundwater remediation...

Salinity and Hydraulic Issues at a Constructed Wetlands
A constructed wetlands at Boulder City, Nevada was designed to use effluent pumped from the City's wastewater treatment plant. The design was complicated by the highly permeable...

Effect of Surface Water and Ground Water Interaction on Atrazine Transport to Pumping Wells
High concentrations of agricultural chemicals in flood waters have been reported in many Midwestern rivers and streams. The public water supply wells of a number of riparian communities...

Direct Sizing of Small Stormwater Pump Stations
Pump stations are components of stormwater drainage systems that remove collected storm runoff from locations where drainage by gravity is not feasible. Usually pump stations will operate...

Eddy Pump Dredging Demonstration at Cresta Reservoir
A demonstration test of a new environmentally ifiendly slurry dredging technology using the EDDY Pump, a patented vortex slurry pump, was perfbrmed in 1994 at Cresta Reservoir in northern...

A New Strategic Management of Pumping Station in Sewer Systems
Pumping stations are literally the heart of most sewer system operations and sewage treatment plant processes. Current studies show that a small improvement of pump efficiency will offer...

Computer Optimization of a Groundwater Treatment Facility
A computer model has been developed to optimize the operation of a groundwater oil recovery treatment plant. The site consists of 24 pump and treat recovery wells which lead to a treatment...

Eastern San Joaquin County Groundwater Management
An aquifer system of significant volume is located in Eastern San Joaquin County (ESJC), part of California's Central Valley. The industry in that region is primarily agriculture,...

Modeling of Surface Water Pumps in TVA Reservoirs
This paper describes the numerical simulation of surface water pump perforniance at Cherokee and Douglas Dams. The modeling objective was to determine the surface water pump initial velocities...

Effect of Pump-Ins on California Aqueduct Water Quality
A model has been developed, based on the assumption of constant Aqueduct volume, to predict the effect of ground water pump-ins on Aqueduct water quality. Designated SuperCAMP (California...

Strategies for Operation of Orange County Water District Talbert Seawater Intrusion Barrier, California
Heavy groundwater production in the area of coastal Orange County accounts for large seasonal fluctuations in water levels that can cause groundwater gradients to reverse seasonally. The...

Comprehensive Modelling of Water Distribution Networks
An analyst of a water distribution systems must frequently contend with a host of problems with very different time scales. Traditionally, such concerns have been accommodated by having...

Computation of Velocity Fields of Intravenous Balloon Pumping

The Ranger Telerobotic Flight Experiment: Mission, Technologies, and Programmatics

Comparisons of Site Characterization Methods Using Mixed Data

A Comparison of Geological and Stochastic Approaches to Characterization of Heterogeneity and their Effects on Simulations of Pump-and-Treat Systems

Practical Guide to Grouting of Underground Structures
This book presents a hands-on discussion of grouting fundamentals and provides a foundation for the development of practical specifications and field procedures. The author takes a practical...
