Water Quality Aspects of Irrigation and Drainage: Past History and Future Challenges for Civil Engineers
This paper presents a brief history of irrigation and drainage related to ASCE activities on its Jubilee. This paper discussed legislation and policies that affect irrigation and drainage...

Assessing Long-Term Pollutant Concentration Trends in Urban Runoff for TMDL Planning and Regulatory Assessment
Loads of some pollutants in many urban watersheds include a substantial component originating with non-point sources and stormwater runoff. TMDL planning includes estimating those loads,...

Assessment of Water Quality Monitoring Sites by an Optimization Method
Allocation of sampling sites is the initial and the most crucial step of the water quality monitoring network design and redesign process. Several different approaches have been used within...

Impact of Ground Water Management on the Hydropattern of Wetlands
In this paper, we examine the effect of altering the pumping rates of a large municipal well field, on the hydropattern of the near by PENSUCO wetland. A flow model developed earlier using...

Leakage Control—Finding a New Resource from the Existing One
It is estimated that by the year 2005, one person in two will have an insufficient supply of one of the world's most precious elements: water. Worse still, it is predicted that this shortage...

Rate of Under-Registration Due to Failures of Large Meters
Leaks and meter under registrations are suspected as primary components of unaccounted-for water in Korea. In 2001, national unaccounted-for-water rate is reported as 26.6%. More than...

Transparency and Integrity in Water Management
The purpose of this Paper will be to explore, define and discuss the matter of transparency, integrity and effectiveness in water and associated land management. In view of the complex...

A Decision Support System for Drought Management Planning
Traditional drought management planning has focused on curtailment of demand by instituting voluntary or mandatory restrictions on water consumption when regional hydroclimatic indicators...

How Should the U.S. and Mexico Manage Their Transboundary Water Quality?
The purpose of this workshop is to discuss with ASCE members the progress in developing a Standards document and Management Plan document associated with water quality management across...

Overall EWRI/ASCE Standards Process
The American Society of Civil Engineers is an ANSI-accredited standards development organization (SDO) and as such develops consensus-based standards in a wide-range of technical areas...

Fate of TCE in Phytoremediation Systems
The phytoremediation of trichloroethylene (TCE) and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has been developed from a mere concept to full applications over the past decade. However, the...

Thermal Cyclone Washing for Remediation of Petroleum Contaminated Soils
Thermal Cyclone Washing (TCW) is a soil remediation technology developed and tested at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. TCW is a combination of thermal, chemical, and physical...

Decision Support System for Daily Real-Time Operations in the Geum River Basin, Korea
A joint international collaboration between the Korea Water Resources Corporation (KOWACO) and Colorado State University (CSU) has resulted in development of a decision support system...

The Accuracy of Extrapolated Design Estimates with Hydrologic and Environmental Models
Extrapolation error in water resources and environmental modeling has not been the subject of adequate study in the past. In research and design, estimates obtained from regression models...

Characterization of Anaerobic Microbial Consortium Response to Thiol-Reactive Compounds
The activity of anaerobes in wastewater treatment processes can be limited when a toxicant enters the system. For certain toxicants, along with the decrease in metabolic activity, an efflux...

Replacing a Dying Water Infrastructure
The water infrastructure in the United States will soon need massive repairs. Pipes are leaking, and most pipes are near the end of their life cycles. Tens of thousands of sewer overflows...

Development and Application of a Decision Support System for Municipal Water Infrastructure Planning: Challenges and Successes
Many water utilities across the country continue to face the challenge of intelligent planning for cost effective, efficient operation, larger demands, stricter government regulations,...

Panel Discussion on Stormwater Issues in Pennsylvania
The management of stormwater in Pennsylvania has radically changed over the last several years due to the concern of the citizens of the Commonwealth, and the advent of NPDES Phase II....

The Pocono Creek Goals-Based Watershed Management Pilot Study-Phase 2
Phase 2 of the Pocono Creek Pilot Study begins with focusing on the issues identified in Phase 1 and prioritizing them on a watershed wide scale. The Pocono Project worked through the...

Sediment Remediation at the Unnamed Tributary to the Ottawa River
A sediment removal action was conducted in the Unnamed Tributary to the Ottawa River to address sediments containing polychlorinated biphenyls(PCBs) at concentrations up to 74,000 mg/kg....
