Water for Life: Have Improvements in Water and Wastewater Infrastructure along the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo Affected the Lives of Mexico and Texas Border Residents?
Prior to 1990 the poor communities along the Mexico/US border did have not have comparable waterand wastewater infrastructure investments that exist in other US cities. The explosion of...

Summary of Approaches for Estimating Playa Lake Flooding
Playa, or terminal, lakes are common in semi- and arid environments; and their characteristic level, hard, and usually dry surfaces make them ideal for airports, as they are used in the...

Effects of Impervious Area Estimation Methods on Simulated Peak Discharges
The variability of simulated flood discharges is evaluated using two methods for estimating impervious surfaces and common design methods in the Mission Creek watershed (31 sq km) located...

Probabilistic Analysis of Long-Term Aquifer Recharge
Long-term time series of aquifer recharge and other aquifer fluxes (aquifer discharge, groundwater extraction) are essential to monitor and understand aquifer processes. This paper presents...

The Role of Aesthetics in Bridge Design
