  • Measurements and three-dimensional simulations of flow in a shallow reservoir subject to small-scale wind field inhomogeneities induced by sheltering

    Spremberg Reservoir is a small and shallow water body where wind sheltering along steep and densely vegetated sections of the shoreline is expected to produce small-scale inhomogeneities of the wind field across the water surface. The potential impacts of these inhomogeneities on the quasi-steady circulation in the main subbasin of the reservoir are investigated in this study by means of a ...

  • Plant Profile - Warrenton Wastewater Treatment Plant Sequential Batch Reactor

    The Warrenton (Ore.) Wastewater Treatment Plant is brand new. In fact, it initiated full operation Jan. 2, although the plant has been utilized since June 28, 2006. The sequencing batch reactor (SBR) plant was constructed on top of an existing facultative sewer lagoon site. The site conditions prohibited deep excavations, so the three basins for the SBRs are shallow, at only 12.5 ft (3.8 m), with ...

  • Calibration of a 2-D morphodynamic model using water–sediment flux maps derived from an ADCP recording

    This study compared numerical simulations of the hydro-morphodynamics of a stretch of the Po River (Italy) to detailed measurements of the river's morphology and water–sediment fluxes. A survey of the 8-km-long, 250-m-wide river section, previously described in former publications, was performed using two vessels. The first was equipped with a multibeam echo sounder for bathymetry ...

  • Fold geometry model of Coyote hills segment of Puente hills blind-thrust system applied to interpretation of long-term water level data

    Recent work by others along the Coyote Hills segment of the Puente Hills blind-thrust system has imaged the near-surface structural features generated by activity of that intrabasin fault. Published shallow seismic profiles near the south flank of the Coyote Hills indicate the blindthrust system is expressed by south-facing folding of Quaternary terrestrial sediments underlying the hills. ...

  • Application of high-resolution geophysical methods in submarine pipeline inspection

    High-resolution marine geophysical equipment employed includes single beam echo sounder (SBES), multi-beam echo sounder (MBES), sub-bottom profiler (SBP) and side scan sonar (SSS). By employing SBES, the reflection curve in shallow water reveals the real condition of pipeline; while in deep water, the reflection or diffraction curve can't reveal the real condition. Compared with SBES, MBES is ...

  • Variability of Flow and Solutes in the Rattaphum Catchment (Songkhla Lake Basin), Thailand

    Pesticides can have a number of adverse impacts on crops, soil and water. In this paper, we focus on the physical and hydraulic properties of soils controlling the leaching of pesticides into the shallow groundwater of the Rattaphum Catchment in Thailand. Results from an analysis of soil physical properties, hydraulic conductivity, dye tracer and bromide tests show that the top 10–30 cm of soils ...

  • Effect of bed roughness on 1-D entropy velocity distribution in open channel flow

    A theoretic-analytical formulation, based on entropy velocity profile law and classical relationships for uniform flow and friction factor, is proposed enlightening the general logarithmic relationship existing between the parameter Φ(M), defined as mean cross section velocity over maximum velocity, and the ratio water depth/bed roughness ...

  • Soil and groundwater assessment, North-West England

    Project Remediation Strategies were retained to undertake contamination delineation and assessment work at a logistics depot following an accidental release of a large volume of diesel.  An overnight failure in a joint on a pressurised fuel pipeline had resulted in a loss of 15,000 litres of red diesel. Initial response works identified a small proportion of the diesel had ...

  • Mapping sediment thickness case study

    Polk County, Florida Bathymetric and sub-bottom surveys were conducted within a clay settling pond at a Phosphate mine in Central Florida. Prior to the geophysical survey, a depression or slump had formed along the northern dam of the pond. The purpose of the study was to map various sediment layers within the pond to help determine if the depressions or slumps were related to sinkhole ...

  • Hydrogeologic Investigation of VOC Contamination in Bedrock Using Mass Flux Analysis – A Case History

    Courtesy of US EPA and NGWA proceedings of the 2004 U.S. EPA/NGWA Fractured Rock Conference: State of the Science and Measuring Success in Remediation, September 13-15, 2004, Portland, Maine AbstractA fractured bedrock system was investigated using a combination of hydrogeologic methods to minimize the number and depth of bedrock wells installed during the investigation. These ...

  • World War II Memorial, DC - Case Study

    In 2003, AdEdge Water Technologies began working closely with EarthTech, the assigned engineering firm responsible for specifying and selecting the various water treatment systems serving the new National World War II Monument in Washington, DC. Stormwater and groundwater control and treatment are essential aspects of this project given the location of the site on the Mall adjacent to the ...

  • Case study - Gas plant groundwater remediation

    One-pass trenching method used for a gas plant groundwater remediation project Not many environmental engineers have heard of one-pass trenching and even fewer have actually applied this cutting-edge technology to environmental control and clean-up. However, a growing number of companies are starting to use this technology, resulting in decreased cost of installation and increased system ...

  • Case Study - Construction Aggregate: Sand

    Geologic Mapping of Sand Unit Thickness Pyramid was contracted to perform an electrical resistivity survey across 230 acres of undeveloped land in North Carolina. The purpose of the survey was to quantify the lateral extents and approximate depth/thicknesses of sandy soils near the ground surface. The client was interested in the potential of the site to be utilized as a sand mine, and ...

  • Innovation risk slows offshore wind foundation development

    As offshore wind technology develops ever more gigantic machines further from shore into deeper waters, it is common wisdom that new foundation technologies are needed. But are they? Monopile, and some jacket foundations, still dominate the offshore wind market in commercial operation. Prototype floating foundations are performing well in demo or pilot projects, but scaling up is only ...

  • Case study – benzene contamination - tank battery, Weld County, Colorado

    Introduction LTE was requested by Devon Energy Corporation (Devon) to remediate residual soil and groundwater impacts at an exploration and production site in Weld County, Colorado. Soil impacts were found from the surface to 24 feet below ground surface (bgs) and were a result of produced water sump and aboveground storage tank overfills. Benzene concentrations in the groundwater were up to ...

  • Rainfall, Runoff and Infiltration Re-visited

    Introduction The flow variations in sewers have been modelled for several years with a comparatively high degree of accuracy as far as the diurnal variations and responses to climatic conditions are concerned. However, until comparatively recently the variations in flow due to fluctuations in groundwater levels, soil storage capacity and wetness of the catchment have only been modelled in basic ...

  • ACO KerbDrain helps meet the demanding performance specifications at Hindhead Tunnel, Surrey

    Constructing a road tunnel under the sensitive environment of the Devil's Punchbowl in Surrey has been a major engineering achievement. It has required every element of the project to meet not only the demanding highway performance specifications but also the absolute need to protect and preserve a unique ecological area. The tunnel's carriageway drainage system is no exception. The improvement ...
