Milwaukee's Deep Tunnels—No Clone
Tunnel boring machines are excavating nearly 19 miles of tunnels 17-32 ft in diameter as part of Milwaukee's $1.9 billion upgrade of its sanitary sewage system. Laid out to...

Design of Seepage Fields for Stormwater Disposal
Stricker Pond is a shallow twenty-acre kettle hole pond in south-central Wisconsin. The pond receives runoff from a closed watershed that is rapidly undergoing low density residential...

Reduction of Nitrogen and COD by Land Disposal of Dairy Wastewater
Land disposal of industrial wastewater, and in particular the ridge and furrow (R&F) process, has been a popular and simple treatment method for many years. This study, conducted...

Scale Model Study Benefits Hydropower Project
The Jim Falls Project on the Chippewa River in Central Wisconsin deals with the replacement of an aged 11 MW run-of-river hydropower plant by a 48 MW peaking plant. A hydraulic model built...

A Unified Hydrodynamic-Water Quality Model
To understand the cause-effect relationships controlling water quality in dynamically narrow estuaries, a time dependent branching, laterally averaged (longitudinal and vertical) hydrodynamic...

Water Quality Management of the Fox River System

Reflections on Racine's Rebound
The existing harbor in Racine has approximately 110 acres of water surface bounded on the north and south side by one-half -mile long concrete breakwaters and on the west by the city....

Runoff Controls in Wisconsin's Priority Watersheds
The Wisconsin nonpoint source program is becoming more heavily involved in urban runoff controls. About 3 million of state cost sharing money has already been allocated to controlling...

Project Management in Wisconsin
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has a decentralized organization with a central office staff providing functional and policy analysis and eight district offices scattered throughout...

The Wisconsin Professional Development Degree

Factors Influencing Oxygen Depletion in Green Bay
Dissolved oxygen depletion in the lower Fox River (Wisconsin) and Green Bay (Lake Michigan) have historically been tied to discharges of organic matter from municipal waste treatment plants...

Rock Masses
Modeling of Underground Openings/Probability of Slope Failure/Fracture of Intact Rock
While soil mechanics has been the dominant interest of Civil Engineers since Karl Terzaghi's recognition of the principle of effective stress, rock mechanics is becoming increasingly...

Influence of Depth-of-Cover on Pipe-Soil Interaction
A major research effort was undertaken to study the structural behavior of a natural gas pipeline under several critical service conditions. The program included a field test site near...

An Instrumented Soil-Pipe System: Automated Data Acquisition and Management
A 16-in. natural gas pipeline near Racine, Wisconsin, had been in service for some 30 years. In 1982 road widening operations on a line parallel with the pipe resulted in a heavily trafficked...

The Group Approach to Implementing Micro Systems
This paper highlights a nearly three year effort to implement microcomputer information systems on 16 small and medium sized transit properties in Wisconsin using a 'group...

Managing Federal Aid Using Microcomputers
Wisconsin's federal aid for highway improvement is about 225,000,000 annually. The obligation authority (the ability to spend the federal aid) is limited to an estimated 162,000,000...

Implementing a Maintenance Program in Wisconsin
A vehicle maintenance and parts inventory control microcomputer package was developed and implemented for thirteen small transit properties as a part of the Statewide Microcomputer Implementation...

Low Cement Content High Strength Concrete
The fundamental objective of this research project was to develop mix design information for structural grade concrete using high fly ash content. The fly ash used in this project was...

Stress and Strain Responses of a Soil-Pipe System to Vehicular Traffic
A 16-in. natural gas pipeline near Racine, Wisconsin, had been in service for some 30 years. In 1982 road widening operations on a line parallel with the pipe presented the opportunity...

Numerical Modeling of Groundwater-Lake Systems
Groundwater inflows can have important effects on the chemistry and biology of a lake ecosystem. For example, studies of lakes in Northern Wisconsin documented localization of ferromanganese...
