Salinity changes in Pontchartrain Basin Estuary, Louisiana, resulting from Mississippi River-Gulf outlet partial closure plans with width reduction( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet (MRGO) consists of a ship channel 36 ft deep and 500 ft wide, extending approximately 76 miles from the juncture of the Inner Harbor Navigation Channel and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in New Orleans, LA, to the -38 mlw (mean low water) -ft contour in the Gulf of Mexico, The purpose of the MRGO is to provide a deep-draft channel to the Port of New Orleans Inner Harbor Facilities. Since the MRGO's completion in January 1968, saltwater flux from the MRGO through direct connections to Lake Borgne and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway has contributed to an increase in the salinity concentration of the lakes and Biloxi Marshes. This report presents the results of a numerical mode investigation used to predict average salinity changes that will occur in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin as a result of varying levels of depth and width closure of the MRGO below Lake Borgne. This report follows a previous study, ERDC/CHL TR-01-14, that modeled depth closure alone, which produced very low changes in salinity
Discharge and suspended-sediment data for the lower Atchafalaya River, Atchafalaya Bay, and Wax Lake outlet, Louisiana, 1980-82 by George J Arcement( Book )

Old River overbank structure outlet modifications : hydraulic model investigation by Ronald R Copeland( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six different outlet modification designs for the Old River Overbank Control Structure were evaluated. Model tests were conducted on five of the designs and design variations. A 1:24-scale section model was used to simulate discharges up to 550,000 cfs. Type 5 outlet modification design, utilizing gabions placed parallel to the flow on a 1V on 10H slope, was deemed the best of the six designs tested. Recommendations were also made to increase gabion effectiveness by improved construction and placement methods
Old River low-sill control structure : dynamic hydraulic forces acting on the stilling basin, survey boat safety, and debris passage : hydraulic model investigation by Bobby P Fletcher( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tests were conducted in 1:36-scale section models of the high and low bays to develop guidance for rehabilitation of the existing stilling basin, to develop guidance for the safety of survey boats operating in the approach to the structure, and to evaluate characteristics of debris passage through the structure. The portion of the basin between the baffles and end still was protected with sloping modules constructed of steel and grout, and tests were conducted to determine the hydraulic forces acting on the modules. A flow spoiler design to reduce uplift forces on the modules and not increase the sliding and uplift forces on the modules and not increase the sliding and uplift forces acting on the stilling basin was also investigated. Survey boat safety tests indicated that a typical survey boat operating upstream of the gate bays should be safe with gate openings equal to or less than 30% of the head on the crest. Debris passage tests indicated that debris up to 35 ft long and 3.0 ft thick would pass through the structure with gate openings equal to or greater than about 30 -40% of the head on the crest
Public water supply, Red River Parish, Louisiana : final environmental impact statement by United States( Book )

Hurricane protection structure for London Avenue Outfall Canal, Lake Pontchartrain, New Orleans, Louisiana : hydraulic model investigation by James R Leech( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1:20-scale physical model investigation was conducted to give a three-dimensional analysis of the hydraulic performance of the unique vertical butterfly-gated structure, measure the torque on each gate shaft due to incoming and outgoing flows, and evaluate the effects of wave action on the gates. The model was also used to align the canal to provide a more uniform flow distribution through the structure and measure the water-surface differentials across the structure. Model tests indicated that the original design did not perform as intended; therefore, a solution was obtained by modifying the geometry of the canal and gates by trial and error. The recommended crescent gate design performed satisfactorily for anticipated incoming and outgoing flows. Storm waves are measured along the reach of the canal from the lake to the structure to determine the maximum wave heights propagating in the canal. The model also indicated that the torque on each gate shaft decreased with waves superimposed during pumping operations and increased with waves superimposed during storm surges. The results of the torque measurements are presented in Appendix A to give design information for sizing the dampening device which operates as a shock absorber, the vertical shafts, operating machinery, and structural components

Bayou Chene : the life story of an Atchafalaya basin community by Benjamin Maygarden( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Atchafalaya River Basin has changed a great deal in the past century and a half twisting bayous where steamboats traveled, loaded with barrels of sugar or towing huge rafts of timber, are now filled with sediment and grown over with trees. Other bayous, broad lakes and the Atchafalaya itself have been straightened and dredged to greater depths. Willow thickets now stand where immense live oaks and cypress once grew, robed in Spanish moss. Arrow- straight canals crisscross the landscape, ignoring natural terrain. And every year the spring floods of the Atchafalaya River leave more silt and sand behind, burying the basin's past further beneath the surface. However, some people can recall a different Atchafalaya Basin. They remember a beautiful environment that repaid hard work with rich harvests of timber, fish and game. They remember a home where their ancestors lived for more than three generations, and where they themselves grew up. They remember a small community that no longer exists, but that still draws them together, like a family, after the passage of decades. They remember a place called Bayou Chene
Down by the river : a history of the Baton Rouge riverfront by Ralph B Draughon( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes in detail the history of the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and its riverfront, from its beginnings in the late 17th century to the present. At present, the Port of Greater Baton Rouge can boast of general cargo facilities; grain facilities; liquid bulk terminals; a barge terminal on the Mississippi river; and, to be completed early in 1997, an inland rivers terminal near the junction of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway with the river. In 1994, according to figures supplied by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baton Rouge ranked fourth among ports in the United States in terms of tonnage handled. Furthermore, the capital city outranked seventh-place New Orleans, which had dominated oceangoing commerce in the Mississippi Valley since the eighteenth century
