Exploring All Options
To relieve environmental stress around the Tampa Bay area's existing groundwater wells, Tampa Bay Water—the regional water supplier—is implementing a Master Water Plan that...

Going Against the Grain
Conventional wisdom has it that granular soils perform better in mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall systems. Their properties are well known and simple to express in mathematical...

Coming to the Surface
In the past few years, the coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico and much of Texas have experienced less than normal rainfall and record water demands. During this period, average daily...

Raising the Bar of BART
Although it was originally designed to withstand a strong earthquake, and did so admirably in 1989, the Bay Area Transit (BART) system was recently evaluated to determine its ability to...

National Water Quality Assessment: Moving from Measurement to Understanding
The USGS National Water Quality Assessment (NAWQA) program began in 1991. The objectives of the program were to characterize the quality of the Nations ground and surface water, assess...
