Seasonal Streamflow Forecasts Based Upon Regression
Many western water-supply system operators employ forecasts of seasonal inflows for the snow-melt season to plan spring and summer operations. This study considers the simple statistical...

Automation of Existing Dam Control Schemes
For installations that are already in operation, the following advantages are obtained from installing new electronic equipment: In the case that the dam or certain measuring stations...

Snowden Hydroelectric Facility Expansion and Improvements
A geotechnical investigation was undertaken in October 1983. The investigation included core drill samples at the powerhouse, along the proposed dike, at the retaining walls and headgate...

A Rule-Based System for Estimating Snow Loads on Roofs

Diagnostic Strategies of an Expert System for Simulating Snowmelt Runoff
An expert system, EXSRM, is being developed for an existing and well tested snowmelt runoff model. The expert system assists an unfamiliar user in setting up the model to run and then...

Water-A-Plenty, 1987 Upper Rio Grande Water Year
The paper discusses hydrographs of streamflow and storage of the Upper Rio Grande Basin facilities as well as reservoirs at or near maximum storage. A description of the joint 1987-88...

Snow-Melt Triggered Debris Flows Affecting Utah's Megalopolis
During the abnormally wet years of 1983 and 1984, debris flows were triggered late in spring on the west flank of the Wasatch Mountains and elsewhere in Central Utah. These debris flows...

Oilfield Development vs. Waterfowl in Arctic Alaska (abstract)
The newest oilfield in Alaska is the Lisburne field under development by ARCO Alaska, Inc. , Standard Alaska Production, and Exxon. The Lisburne field is completely surrounded by the older...

Water Supply Forecasting and Irrigation Demand
The Soil Conservation Service (SCS) Snow Survey Program makes periodic seasonal streamflow forecasts at over 500 major points in the western states. These forecasts are the basis for making...

Highlights of Structural Load Provising—1987 BOCA National Building Code

Emerson, Iowa Flood Warning System
A flood warning system was installed in 1985 by the Corps of Engineers at Emerson, Iowa as part of Emerson, Iowa Flood Control Project on Indian Creek. The warning system consists of two...
