Characterizing the Seismic Threat to California's Water Supply

Performance-Based Design Method (PBDM)
This chapter discusses the performance-based design method (PBDM). Topics include performance objectives; recommended analysis methods; modeling guidance; preliminary proportioning; acceptance...

Watershed-Based Permitting — A Myth or Reality?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has promulgated the Total Maximum Daily Load process to achieve the goals of the Clean Water Act. The TMDL processis applied to water...

Simulating Radionuclide Transport Away from an Underground Nuclear Test: Linking Non-Isothermal Flow and Mechanistic Reactive Transport
The low-yield (0.75 kiloton) Cambric underground nuclear test situated in alluvium below the water table offers unique perspectives on radionuclide transport in groundwater. The Cambric...

Evaluation of IA SWAT Testing Protocol for ET Controllers
In recent years the Irrigation Association (IA) has developed a testing protocol for Smart Water Application Technologies (SWAT). These technologies consist of irrigation controllers such...

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...

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...

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...

Watershed Modeling for Surface-Groundwater Interaction
Groundwater use has increased rapidly due to irrigation development in the Great Plains. This is especially true in the Republican Basin that intersects the three states of Nebraska, Kansas...

A Decision Framework for Stormwater Control in Urbanized Watersheds
Historically, urban growth occurred around water bodies due to factors such as easy access to transportation, water supply, and drainage. With the expanded transportation network along...

Considerations Regarding Geochemical Transformations Downstream of Subsurface Wastewater Effluent Disposal Facilities
Many suburban and rural communities use subsurface disposal in conjunction with on-site and other small decentralized systems. In addition, to reduce the impacts of wastewater treatment...

Domestic-Well Water-Quality Data and Reports for the Environmental Public Health Tracking Network: USGS and CDC Collaboration
The mission of the Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program is to provide information from a nationwide network of integrated health and environmental data that drive actions...

Optimization of Well Placement in Groundwater Long Term Monitoring Networks
Long Term Monitoring (LTM) networks play critical roles in tracking the migration of contaminants in groundwater, evaluating the efficiency of the existing remediation techniques, and...

History of the USDA-ARS Experimental Watersheds on the Washita River, Oklahoma
A national experimental watershed network, operated by the Agricultural Research Service of the US Department of Agriculture, was established in 1959 to conduct research on the effects...
