A GIS Model for Assessing the Impact of Increased Channel Discharges on Hydraulic Geometry
A GIS model is being developed that can be used to assess the impact of increased channel discharges on the hydraulic geometry of streams in the Powder River (structural) Basin in northeast...

A Post-Development Audit of the Pick-Sloan Program

Statewide Consumptive Use Estimates
Methodology for estimating consumptive use and consumptive irrigation requirements on a statewide basis is summarized. The methodolgy has been used to update monthly and seasonal consumptive...

Natural, Cultural, & Environmental Resource Values Influencing Colorado River Basin Management
The Colorado River Basin supplies water to the seven western states of Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and California, and to Mexico. Originally the Colorado River...

A Spatial Decision Support System for Vehicle Routing
This paper describes the design, development, and implementation of a computer aided system for planning efficient network maintenance routes. The system has been used to design snow and...

In Situ Recovery of Water from Dormant Comet Cores & CI Carbonaceous Chondrites
Water and volatiles may be produced by drill holes into dormant comet cores or class CI or CM asteroids. This is modeled after in-situ mining as in the Frasch process sulfur mines of the...

Hydrologic Considerations in Mined Land Reclamation
Thunder Basin Coal Company (TBCC), a subsidiary of the Atlantic Richfield Company, operates the Black Thunder Mine in the Powder River Basin of Northeast Wyoming. The mine, located roughly...

Variations in Curve Number for a Reclaimed AML Site
Runoff and erosion from an abandoned mine land site near Sheridan, Wyoming were monitored for four years following reclamation. Small plots, which included lengths from 12 to 24 meters...

Flow Impingement Velocities, Snake River, Wyoming

A Case Study in Sludge Handling
When the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority (WVSA) converted its operation to a secondary treatment plant in 1988, something important was missing. That something was a method to handle...

A Case for Modernizing the Funding and Repayment of Regional Water/Power Projects
Several regional water/power projects authorized by Congress remain unfunded and therefore uncompleted year after year. In this paper examples of such uncompleted projects are examined....

Lysimeter Use in Water Rights Determination
In the Western United States, a water right (the legal right to divert water from a stream) is a property right. The impact a water right has upon a stream is commonly defined through...

Water Table Lysimeter Data Interpretation
Lysimeters were used to estimate seasonal water use of wet meadows and phreatophytes in northern Utah, southeast Idaho and southwest Wyoming (1983-1990). Twelve water table lysimeters...

Surface Water/Groundwater Interaction Studies
Studies were performed on a high elevation (2440 meters or 8000 feet) valley stream system and a high (1980 meters or 6500 feet) cold desert stream system in Wyoming, to analyze the surface...

Remediation and Mitigation Associated with Contamination of Water by Irrigation Drainage
Inorganic trace constituent or pesticide contamination problems associated with irrigation drainage from Federally constructed or managed irrigation projects have been identified in several...

Investigating Fault Rupture Hazards: An Example from the Wasatch Fault Zone, Utah
The Kern River project consists of a 36-inch diameter high-pressure natural gas pipeline, to be constructed from southwestern Wyoming to southern California. The alignment crosses several...

Philosophy for Treatment of High-Pressure Natural Gas Pipelines at Active Fault Crossings
Natural gas from fields in the overthrust belt of southwest Wyoming will be collected and transported to Southern California. The proposed Kern River Pipeline will transport gas to Daggett,...

Cheyenne Stage II Water Delivery Pipeline and Shoshone Municipal Water Supply Pipeline
This paper deals with the design and construction aspects of two pipeline projects in Wyoming. Located in southeastern Wyoming, the Cheyenne Stage II Water Delivery Pipeline consists of...

Oilcrete
Threatened by probable tightening of hazardous-waste legislation, oil companies are searching for ways to dispose of or stabilize oil-drilling byproducts. One way is cementitious stabilization...

Glacial Icemelt in the Wind River Range, Wyoming
The Wind River Range of Wyoming contains the greatest concentration of glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains with two of the larger glaciers being Dinwoody and Gannett Glaciers. This...
