The Fairfield-Suisun Urban Runoff Management Program: The Approach of Small Communities to NPDES Permitting
The Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District is responsible for NPDES permit acquisition and maintenance of the storm drainage facilities of the Cities of Fairfield and Suisun City, California....

NPDES Municipal Storm Water Permit—A Utility Approach
Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities (SLCPU) is the agency responsible for the operation of the drainage facilities in Salt Lake City. The drainage function is established as...

Shelter from the Storm
Assuming that EPA meets its most recent deadline (Octobet 31, 1993), municipalities (cities and counties) with populations of less than 100,000 that own or operate separate storm-water...

Recovery of Vegetation of Barrier Island Washover Zones
Barrier islands are prime examples of disturbance dominated ecosystems. They are formed, shaped, and moved by hurricanes. During storms overwash uproots large expanses of vegetation and...

Project Performance: Ocean City, Maryland Beach Nourishment
Detailed monitoring of the performance of a two-phase beach nourishment project has provided valuable information on beach fill behavior and long-term response of a beach fill to prevailing...

Revere Beach and Point of Pines, Massachusetts, Shore Front Study
This paper describes a study conducted by the Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC) to determine the degree of storm protection provided by an existing coarse beach fill at Revere...

Forecasting Wave Attenuation Performance for Marinas
A methodology is presented for interpreting the performance of a dynamically acting floating attenuator in a field of irregular waves. The analysis explains the physical significance of...

Wave-Induced Erosion on a Tidal Marsh Shoreline in Corte Madera Bay
One of the primary factors controlling the formation and configuration of a shoreline is the interaction of waves with the shore. A monitoring program was set up at the Corte Madera Ecological...

An Analysis of Selected Beach Runup Data from Storms

Selected Precipitation Characteristics in Antelope Valley, Mojave Desert, CA
An urban hydrology study currently in progress in Antelope Valley, California, includes the collection and analyses of precipitation and runoff data. Storms in Antelope Valley are most...

Storm Precipitation in Southwest British Columbia
The storm precipitation in a mountainous watershed in the southwestern British Columbia has been studied. Analysis of the spatial distribution of the storm features showed that the precipitation...

Back to the Unit Hydrograph Method
In this paper, the basic single area unit hydrograph model is shown to represent a highly complex, rational, link-node model which includes (i) variable effective rainfall distributions...

Estimation and Regionalization Procedures of Nash's Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph
A 'total fit' method is suggested for computing Nash's instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) which minimizes the errors of all ordinates between the observed and generated hydrographs. Previous...

A Probabilistic Approach to Estimate Design Parameters for Flood Control Projects
The purpose of this paper is to provide engineering consultants with an improved method to estimate design parameters for various return periods in rural areas. The proposed method combines...

Muskingum Basin Reservoir Pool Frequency Analysis
The purpose of the study was to develop a consistent and defendable elevation frequency analysis of pool elevations for sixteen reservoirs within the basin. A significant level of interest...

Mean Areal Precipitation Estimation Using Radar
The accuracy of mean areal total storm precipitation (MAP) over small urban basins (30-100 km2) in the Denver, CO metro region was examined using...

A Log-Triangular Design Hyetograph for Stormwater Management
A method is developed to generate a log-triangular design hyetograph from historical rainfall data. The method considers the characteristics from other commonly used methods for design...

Predicting Runoff from Rainfall Using Neural Networks
This paper shows the modeling technique, neural nets, to be successful in predicting the hydrograph of a storm from the hyetographs of storms on the same basin. A root mean square error...

Augmented TINFLOW: A Deterministic Runoff Model with a Stochastic Rainfall Input
Augmented TINFLOW consists of a deterministic runoff model based on a Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) description of a watershed. The rainfall input is created by simulating convective...
