Freshwater Diversions from the Mississippi River to Wetlands in Southeast Louisiana
Wetlands in the United States are disappearing at a rapid rate due to a variety of manmade and natural causes. In southeast Louisiana, freshwater diversions from the Mississippi River...

Development of Hydraulic Structures
The Bureau of Reclamation was established in 1902. Since that time, Reclamation has constructed more than 220 dams. Each dam, depending on its function, has two or more principal hydraulic...

Restoration of a Buttress Dam
Inspections of Morris Shepard Dam on the Brazos River in Texas revealed serious defects in the dam and its foundation. Piezometric pressures below the spillway buttresses greatly exceeded...

Water Measurement and Accounting of Lake Michigan Diversion
The diversion of water from Lake Michigan and the Lake Michigan Basin into the Mississippi River Basin has been regulated since the turn of the century. The U.S. Supreme Court Decree of...

Inclusion of Wetlands in Designated Floodway Studies
The purpose of this paper is to propose a change in the traditional methods and procedures used by hydrologist and hydraulic engineers to define floodways and floodway fringe areas. We...

Owens Valley Groundwater Basin Proposed Management
The City of Los Angeles imports over 60 percent of its water supply from the Owens River Watershed through a program of groundwater pumping and surface water diversions as a part of the...

Risk Analysis as a Tool to Determine Spillway Design Capacities
Lyman Dam is an earth and rockfill structure located on the Little Colorado River approximately 11 miles south and upstream of St. Johns, Arizona. Several studies examining the safety...

Effects of Spillway Operation on Cavitation Damage to Hugh Keenleyside Dam Spillway
The Hugh Keenleyside Dam (also known as Arrow Dam) is located on the Columbia River, at the outlet of Lower Arrow Lake, 53 km north of the Canada - U.S.A. border. The project has been...

Minimizing Erosion Damage to Embankments, Spillways, and Channels With Articulated Concrete Block Revetment Systems
