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...

Stream Instability in Loess Base Channels
The incision of bess base stream channels is a common and destructive response to alterations within a watershed in the midwest. Monitoring and evaluating procedures are being performed...

The Watershed Approach: A Framework for Action
This paper describes and promotes a workable framework for watershed management as an effective means to address the nation's remaining water resource problems, with the ulthnte...

BASINS—A GIS-linked Watershed Analysis and Modeling Tool
Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources (BASINS) is a GIS based tool developed by EPA's Office of Water to help States target and evaluate water...

Estimating Sediment Conveyance Capacity and Deposition Potential in Culverts
In watersheds characterized by high sediment production, culverts must be designed to adequately convey both water and sediment without causing excessive backwater upstream of the culvert...

Sustainable Watershed Management in Developing Watersheds
In many parts of the country, land development at the fringe of major metropolitan areas has accelerated and is occurring in historically unprecedented land consuming patterns. This development...

Implementation of Watershed Planning in Chester County Pennsylvania
The author presents portions of a study into the current watershed regulatory framework in Pennsylvania, and how effectively this framework supports watershed sustainability when faced...
