Simulation of Changes in Storm-Runoff Characteristics, Perris Valley, California
The population of Perris Valley, California, has increased from about 20,000 in 1970 to more than 130,000 in 1992. Increased urbanization in Perris Valley since 1970 has produced appreciable...

Impact of Urbanization on Storm Runoff
The engineering design of hydraulic structures is directly associated with the estimation of design parameters connected with extreme events. Methods of estimating extreme events typically...

Storm Sewer Analysis & Design Utilizing Hydrographs
In this paper a computer model, designated STORM.HYD, for the analysis and design of storm sewer systems utilizing a hydrograph procedure is presented and discussed. This model which actually...

Sacramento Drainage Manual—Hydrologic Procedures
For a period of over two years, HDR Engineering, Inc. (HDR) and HYDMET have been working with the City and County of Sacramento to develop a Drainage Manual. This Manual contains seven...

Implementation of Storm Water Management Programs in the California Land Development Process
One of the most powerful and encompassing tools for introducing storm water management programs to land development is through California's general plan process. California cities and...

Characterization of Thunderstorm Rainfall for Hydrologic Modeling
Rainfall and runoff records for 30 events from a 630-hectare subwatershed on the USDA-ARS Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed in southeastern Arizona were used to estimate the desirable...

Dune Profiles Before and After Storm Events in Coastal Massachusetts
It is well known that short-term changes in dune profiles can have a major effect on the severity of storm damage to coastal areas. In light of this, the standardized methodology developed...

Case History: 100-Year Flood Event in San Francisco
San Francisco experienced a 100-year storm in the winter of 1981-2. This is a report of the flooding damage from this event and the actions that the City took to resolve the flooding problems....

Hurricane Andrew in South Florida: Preparing a Water Management System for Disaster
This paper analyzes Hurricane Andrew from its beginning as a tropical storm to the powerful force that it later became. The careful monitoring that took place throughout its transformation...

Extreme Events and Coastal Wetlands
Temporal ecosystem behavior in tidal wetlands can be static, dynamically stable, progressively changing, or subject to catastrophic change during extreme events. Catastrophic change in...

Indian River Inlet: Is There a Solution?
Man-made changes at Indian River inlet, Delaware, have occurred over the past 6 decades. During this period the tidal prism of the Indian River-Rehoboth Bays system has increased along...

Storm Drainage Channel Rehabilitation
30 km (19 miles) of existing concrete lines storm drainage channels were studied due to repeated failures. Alternate failures causes were hypothesized and evaluated. Physical testing was...

Salt Transport in a Tidal Canal, West Neck Creek, Virginia
Flow and stability were monitored during 1989-92 in West Neck Creek, Virginia, which provides a direct hydraulic connection between the saline waters of Chesapeake Bay and the relatively...

`Method of Successive Subtraction of Subbasin PMP Volumes for Critical Storm Development for Dam Safety Hydrologic Assessments

Elimination of Surge Tanks at Saluda Hydroelectric Plant

Wave Boundary Layer Above the Submerged Coastal Slope
A calculation method of parameters of turbulent boundary layer formed by waves is proposed. A calculation of boundary layer on a rough slope with inclination typical for steep Caucasian...

On the Calibration of Hydrologic Models
A procedure is proposed to calibrate hydrologic models to generate representative design flows and flood hydrographs. This procedure includes two calibration steps; event calibration and...

Impacts of Winter Storms on Sediment Transport Within the Terrebonne Bay Marsh Complex
Winter storms provide important controls on erosion and deposition in coastal Louisiana. An unanswered question of the Louisiana land loss problem is how these storms impact sediment flux...

The Magdalen Islands, Gulf of Saint Lawrence
The Magdalen Islands constitute the largest barrier-island system in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. They represent 435 km of coasts at the 1:50 000 scale, two-thirds of which are sandy and...

Simulation of Beach Fill Response to Multiple Storms, Ocean City, Maryland
The beach fill project constructed over 1988-1991 at Ocean City, Maryland, includes nearshore wave and water-level measurements and high-accuracy beach profile sea-sled surveys performed...
