This paper describes the experience of the Brazilian Electric System in flood control at Parana River basin, and presents the factors that required the consideration of flood impacts in...

A Stormwater Management Plan
Part 2 of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Permit requires both sampling and analysis of stormwater and the control of illicit discharges to stormwater...

Searching for Optimal Combinations of Stormwater Detention Basins
Hydrology of urban areas is dominated by two distinct characteristics: (1) a preponderance of impervious surfaces created primarily by pavement and roofs, and (2) the presence of constructed...

The Treatment Train Detention Concept
With the recent concern for nonpoint source pollution impacts to receiving waters, the Village of Saukville, Wisconsin took advantage of state funding grants to conduct a Stormwater Management...

Effective Subsurface Retention/Detention Systems
Stringent environmental regulations and increasing land values have made finding an effective way to manage storm water runoff a high priority for consulting engineers and land developers....

The Great Great Lakes
Superlatives are in order when talking about the Great Lakes of North America! As a body of water half the size of the Mediterranean Sea and stretching more than a third across North America,...

Cooperative Approaches in Achieving Additional Water Conservation at Prado Dam
The Orange County Water District (OCWD) has successfully negotiated multi party agreements that provide for the use of Prado Basin for water conservation while ensuring protection of the...

Identification of a General Linear Model for Reservoir Inflows Forecasting
General linear stochastic models represent a valuable alternative to conceptual models in order to describe runoff generating mechanisms in a drainage basin. In regions such as Quebec,...

The Part of Precipitation in Some Ecological Problems of the Dnister Basin
The purpose of the present paper is to study the peculiarity of precipitation falling in the Dnister basin, their distribution on territory, and research of several year's precipitation...

The Timberlake Dam Failure: A Hydrometeorological Assessment
Extremely heavy rainfall over the Timberlake basin in southwest Virginia on 23 June 1995 caused an earthen dam to fail and resulted in fatalities. The meteorological conditions are examined...

Experiences in Cleaning Up the Influence of Oil Spill on the Water Bodies
Experiences in cleaning up the influence of oil spill on water bodies of Komi Republic (European part of Russian North) and Dagestan Republic (North Caucasus) was generalized. In both...

Flash Floods and Their Control in the Indian Arid Zone
Flash floods are common hydrologic phenomena in the arid north west India. Drainage basins of high relief, a large percentage of surficial bed rock, sparse vegetation, and shallow soils...

Economic Efficiency of Regulations for Allocation and Control of Surface Water Withdrawals in Humid Regions
This paper proposes several alternative regulatory instruments for the allocation of flowing water and evaluates these instruments with respect to economic efficiency for a hypothetical...

Are Erosion Control Programs Reducing Sedimentation?
In the Midwest, the USEPA National Watershed Monitoring Program is determining the effectiveness of land management strategies to improve water quality and biological diversity. The illinois...

Status Report — Task Committee on GIS Models and Distributed Models of the Watershed
In recognition of the trend toward the adoption of geographic information system (GIS) technology in analyzing hydrologic problems and the obvious applications of GIS in incorporating...

Development of Islandwide Groundwater Pollution Potential for Taiwan
Using the modified DRASTIC and existing and newly surveyed data, groundwater pollution potentials for all 10 groundwater basins in Taiwan were calculated on 2 km by 2 km grids. This paper...

Development of a Hydrologic Model with Both Spatially Distributed and Physically Based Capabilities
A distributed hydrologic model is developed at The Pennsylvania State University for use with rasterized data bases. The purpose of the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model or THM is to investigate...

Influence of Flooding Events on Suspended Matter Quality of the Meuse River (The Netherlands)
Flooding events of the Rhine and Meuse Rivers have struck The Netherlands in 1993 and 1995. In the Meuse River basin, the river forelands have been widely used for housing and agro-industrial...

Mixing Processes in the Dangava River Estuary
The aim of this report is to present main changes in the hydrology of the Daugava River estuary after its natural water flow became regulated and to present a simple physical model of...

Changes in Ground Water—Surface Water Interaction in the Santa Ana River Caused by Independent Water Resources Management Activities
For the past 18 years, ground water artificially-stored in the Chino Basin, has been managed as a zero-interest bank account. Recent water resources management studies show that losses...
