Development and application of techniques for predicting leachate quality in confined disposal facilities : background and theory by Donald O Hill ( Book )
4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A theoretical framework for predicting leachate quality in confined disposal facilities was developed using mass transport theory. The physical-chemical processes governing leaching were identified and described mathematically. Various approaches to describing contaminant transfer form the dredged material solids to the aqueous phase were considered, including equilibrium concepts, dissolution kinetics, intraparticle diffusion, and film effects. The approach recommended for application to dredged material uses an operationally defined distribution (partitioning) coefficient to relate aqueous phase concentration to solid phase concentration. This approach assumes equilibrium within the dredged material between solid and aqueous phases. The equilibrium approach assumes that interphase transfer kinetics are fast compared to the percolation rate of water through dredged material. A sequential batch leach test is recommended for obtaining distribution coefficients, and a pressurized column test using divided-flow (double-ring) parameters is recommended as a physical model of reduced scale for verifying the distribution coefficients obtained in batch tests. The design concepts for the laboratory tests are preliminary, and additional evaluation on the basis of actual test results will be needed before the procedures recommended can be adopted

Evaluation of environmental investments procedures manual interim : cost effectiveness and incremental cost analysis by Ridgley Robinson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This manual serves as a guide for conducting cost effectiveness and incremental cost analyses for the evaluation of alternative environmental restoration or mitigation plans. It presents a procedural framework for conducting the cost analyses and discusses how they fit into, and contribute to, the Corps planning process. The procedures included in this manual are based upon the conceptual framework of the U.S. Water Resources Council's Principles and Guidelines and comply with current Corps regulations and guidance on incremental cost analysis for environmental restoration or mitigation planning studies. Discussed in the manual are the conceptual underpinnings, practical procedures, and implications for decision making of cost effectiveness and incremental cost analyses. Also provided are instructions for accompanying automated computational procedures for conducting the analyses. These automated procedures will execute the otherwise time-consuming number-crunching, allowing planners more time to formulate and evaluate alternative plans and their outputs. (MM)

Wetlands investigations on Akers Ranch in Big Valley, California ( Book )
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study, conducted for the US Army Engineer District, Sacramento (SPL), involved delineation and evaluation of wetlands, a survey of previous farming activities, and assessment of impacts of a proposed land development plan on the Robert W. Akers ranch near Bieber in northeastern California. Results of the study were used by SPK to support litigation in which the property owner allegedly violated provision of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act of 1977. The first task was to delineate natural wetlands occurring on the 9,600-acre ranch. A combination of transects and perimeter wetland boundary sampling was used. Vegetation, soil, and hydrology parameters were examined at prescribed locations, and the area at a sample point was considered to be a wetland if a positive wetland indicator was found for each of the three parameters. Task II consisted of an assessment of the functions and values of the natural wetlands. Field observations, hydrologic analyses, and published reports were provided as input to the Federal Highway Administration wetlands. assessment technique that consideres all known wetlands functions. Task III involved a survey of previous farming activities on the property. Task Iv consisted of an assessment of the impacts of a proposed land development plan. The assessment revealed that the proposed activities would result in the destruction of vertually all wetlands on the property, and all functions currently provided by the wetlands would be lost

Leachate testing of Hamlet City Lake, North Carolina, sediment by James M Brannon ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sediment leaching studies of Hamlet City Lake, Hamlet, NC, were conducted in laboratories at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. The purpose of these studies was to provide quantitative information on the potential for leachate impacts on groundwaters if dredged material from Hamlet City Lake were placed in a confined disposal facility (CDF) or under disposal conditions similar to land-farming. The study involved three elements: batch leach tests, column leach tests, and simulations using the Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance (HELP) model. Batch tests were conducted to determine intrinsic leaching characteristics of solids in Hamlet City Lake sediment. Column tests were conducted as a physical analog of continuous flow leaching in a CDF. HELP model simulations were conducted to simulate the generation of leachate by infiltration and to evaluate the relative effectiveness of a disposal site liner. Results of this study showed that, under disposal conditions similar to land-farming, organic contaminants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and total recoverable petroleum hydrocarbons (TRPHs) will decrease in concentration as the result of volatilization and or biodegradation

Reservoirs and waterways : identification and assessment of environmental quality problems and research program development ( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Civil Works program of the Corps of Engineers (CE) involves the entire spectrum of water resources development for the Nation and, as such, is unique among Federal agencies. Current concern for energy demands and water supply have emphasized the need for comprehensive water resources development including hydropower, water supply, and navigation as project purposes. Recreational demands are at a record high for most CE facilities and recreation is generally included as a purpose for new projects. Fish and wildlife enhancement plus water quality management are project purposes that have a direct relationship to the improvement of the Nation's environmental quality, and flood control remains as a traditional project purpose. Consistent with all of these project purposes, the CE is required to address or meet local, regional, and national environmental quality objectives. This requirement has resulted in numerous problems for CE projects in the planning, design, and operational stages. This report contains the results of an effort to identify and assess environmental quality problems associated with Civil Works activities of the CE, and a recommended research program to address these problems
