Economic Valuation of Agricultural Water Use for Large-Scale Modeling
(No paper) A state-wide irrigated agricultural production model has been developed for California. The model is an extension of the Central Valley Production (CVP) Model that was most...

Use of Economic Optimization to Evaluate New Facilities
(No paper) The confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and the San Francisco Bay forms the largest estuary on the West Coast. Known as the Bay-Delta, the region supplies drinking...

Use of Economic Optimization to Assess the Value of Water Marketing
(No paper) There is an increasing interest and implementation of water markets as an allocation mechanism for water in the Western U.S. However, the importance of the timing and location...

Roughness Coefficients in Manning's Equation as an Estimating Tool for Bankfull Discharge in Natural Channels
(No paper) This paper compares the results of Annable's work to the roughness coefficients by stream type given in Rosgen (1994) as well as some additional coefficients from the eastern...

Dynamic Groundwater Remediation Design with Genetic Algorithms
In groundwater remediation design it has been shown that dynamic policies, in which the pumping strategies may vary throughout the remediation period, can result in more cost-effective...

Optimization of the Aquifer Remediation Costs and Design with Pulsed Pumping
(No paper) Pump-and-treat is a common technique for the remediation of contaminated aquifers. However, slow kinetic mass transfer at sites contaminated with organic compounds may reduce...

The Evolution of Florida Water Management
(No paper) The State of Florida has always been very cautious to protect it's natural resources which is the cornerstone of the State's economy. The availability to vast quantities of...

Simplification of Detailed Models of Water Distribution Systems Obtained from GIS Systems
For a long time simplified models have been used to simulate the behaviour of large water distribution networks. Often, simplification has been carried out by removing small diameter pipes...

Urban Runoff Toxicity
Toxicity is controlled by the magnitude/concentration of the contaminant produced in an exposure, the duration of the exposure, and the frequency with which exposures are repeated. When...

Coordinating the Shared Use of Transboundary Water Resources
(No paper) This presentation discusses an ASCE effort to standardize the shared use of transboundary water resources....

Watershed and Reservoir Response Models for the Occoquan Reservoir
(No paper) The Occoquan Reservoir serves as a primary water supply for over 800,000 Virginians in the Washington (DC) Metropolitan area. The Occoquan Watershed is approximately 560 square...

Basin Response Time: Potential Hydrologic Basin Handprint
Hydrologic lead time is an important factor in many water resources engineering applications. The determination of the response time of a watershed to runoff-producing rainfall is the...
