Flood Quantiles for Small Watersheds Using Peak Elevation to Volume Method

Automatized System of Runoff Forecasting for the Amudarya River Basin

Watershed Management for a Limited Coastal Aquifer System
Developing a watershed strategy, which incorporates key issues of a particular watershed, may entail the coordination of several different agencies. Work performed by the USGS, local public...

Selecting Design Conditions as Part of a Watershed Approach to Water Quality Control
EPA water quality guidance recommends that water quality criteria be exceeded no more than once in three years. Standard approaches, based on the use of critical design conditions, have...

Watershed Characteristics and Hydrological Parameters vs. Sediment Yield—Northern Regions of Pakistan
In order to manage, restore, or effectively maintain a watershed it is necessary to know what is really going on inside that watershed, which includes the effects of watershed and hydrological...

Modeling the Lake Decatur Watershed in Illinois to Evaluate Effects of Best Management Practices on Nitrate Loading
The Illinois State Water Survey recently completed a two-year monitoring and modeling study of the Lake Decatur watershed in Illinois to develop land use management alternatives that would...

Stormwater Management Plan Updated for Climate System Changes
When large watershed stormwater management plans are updated, climate system change factors due to global warming effects should be considered. Climate system changes may cause changes...

Rainfall-Runoff Modeling for Watershed Stormwater Management
In the design of watershed stormwater management plans used for land development, the Pennsylvania State Runoff Model (PSRM) presents upstream subbasin flows that contribute to the peak...

Water Quality Modeling of the Rouge River Watershed
A relatively detailed modeling framework for calculating pollution flows and loads to the Rouge River has been developed and tested successfully. The framework includes consideration of...

Effects of Spatial Data Resolution and Subarea Size on a Distributed Runoff Model
Spatial data layers of elevation, land use, and soils for a small agricultural watershed in Pennsylvania were used to study the effect of resolution degradation of raster data on the output...

Developing Parameters for a Quasi-Distributed Runoff Model Using GIS
The widespread availability of radar precipitation data is driving rainfall-runoff modeling from lumped-input to distributed-input methods. As a consequence, model parameterization is...

The Sawmill Creek Watershed Restoration Project
The Sawmill Creek project is a comprehensive watershed restoration effort. The goal is to demonstrate that existing programs can be coordinated in order to improve water quality, and habitat...

Distributed Hydrologic Modeling of Humid Regions
Distributed physically-based hydrologic modeling of humid watersheds with shallow soils is complicated by non-Hortonian runoff production mechanisms. This paper presents a numerical experimental...

Status Report — Task Committee on GIS Models and Distributed Models of the Watershed
In recognition of the trend toward the adoption of geographic information system (GIS) technology in analyzing hydrologic problems and the obvious applications of GIS in incorporating...

A Practical Approach to Watershed Sanitary Surveys
A step-by-step approach for conducting watershed sanitary surveys can be successfully applied to watersheds of all sizes. The approach involves preparing a watershed map, contacting regulatory...

Traditional People and a Modern Mining Company Working Towards Sustainability in Indonesia
Mines often operate in remote areas and usually impact local communities. This paper describes the efforts by PT. Freeport Indonesia (PTFI) to work with traditional people and government...

Results of a GIS/HEC-1 Interface Module
Great strives have been made in recent years to automate the S.C.S. curve number weighting process required for large-scale watershed modeling utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS)...

Field Verification of Dem-Derived Watershed Response
Rainfall-runoff data from an NAEW Experimental Watershed are used to test the feasibility of deriving the watershed response from the digital elevation model of the watershed. Using Clark's...

Modeling of Rattlesnake Creek Watershed Using Swat Model
Watershed scale models are widely used in design and operation of river basin projects and for guiding public decisions. This paper presents modeling details of Rattlesnake Creek watershed...
