River of interests : water management in south Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2010 by Matthew C Godfrey( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1948 Congress answered the outcry of Florida residents for both flood protection and a more reliable drinking water supply by authorizing the Central and Southern Flood Control Project, otherwise known as the C & SF Project. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began construction on one of the nation's largest infrastructure projects. While the project served its intended purposes far better than ever anticipated, it also caused extensive damage to the naturally occurring ecosystems of south Florida, including the Everglades ecosystem located within and beyond Everglades National Park. "River of Interests: Water Management in South Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2000," is a history of the construction of the C & SF Project and the project's unintended impacts on the environment, and the evolution of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP)

San Juan National Historic Site, San Juan, Puerto Rico, design for prevention of wave-induced erosion : hydraulic model investigation by Robert R Bottin( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 1:75-scale (undistorted) hydraulic model of the San Juan National Historic Site, which included the entire historic site, the entrance to San Jaun Harbor, part of Isla de Cabras, and sufficient offshore area in the Atlantic Ocean to permit generation of the required test waves, was used to investigate the effects of proposed structures on wave attack at the historic site. Proposed improvement plans consisted of the installation of rubble-mound revetments and/or breakwaters on both the ocean and bay sides of El Morro Castle. A 90-ft-long wave generator and an automated data acquisition and control system (ADACS) were utilized in model operation

Model studies of the Portugues and Bucana Rivers channelization, Puerto Rico : hydraulic model investigation by Noel R Oswalt( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two 1:30-scale physical hydraulic models of the Portugues and Bucana Rivers were used to determine the adequacy of the original designs for the flood control channelization project through the city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. The proposed channelization included trapezoidal to rectangular channel transitions, stilling basins, and drop structures in the high-velocity channels. A 3300-ft (prototype) channel length was used to study the transitions and stilling basins including riprap stability downstream from the stilling basins. A 1200-ft (prototype) channel length was used to study the drop structures and the adjacent riprap protection requirements. Test results indicated that the original design with certain modifications would effectively transmit all expected flood releases from the proposed Portugues and Cerrillos Dams. Modifications to transitions at entrances to the high-velocity channel reaches were streamlined within the original right-of-way to reduce surface turbulence and standing waves. Geometry of the original stilling basins was altered to prevent the oblique hydraulic jumps and the end-sill heights were lowered to reduce the water-surface drawdown, surface roller waves, and high bottom velocities downstream of each basin

Outlet works for Cerrillos Dam, Cerrillos River, and Portugues Dam, Portugues River, Puerto Rico : hydraulic model investigation by John F George( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tests were conducted on a 1:24-scale model of the outlet works for the Cerrillos and Portugues Dams located in Puerto Rico. The purpose of the model investigation was to determine the performance of the stilling basins for the full range of discharges with minimum head pool and the optimum riprap protection plan for the exit channel. The model reproduced a schematic of the intake tower, conduit transition, 60 percent of the conduit length, the stilling basins, and exit channel. The original design stilling basin (type 1) for the Cerrillos outlet works performed satisfactorily for low discharges of 500 cfs and less, and for the higher range of discharges between 1500 and 2500 cfs (design discharge). The conduits of both Cerrillos and Portugues outlet works were designed to provide for river diversion during construction of the dams. When the dams are completed, the flow will be regulated so that only bank-full capacities will be passed through the stilling basins. The conduit capacities were 4500 cfs for Cerrillos and 5300 cfs for Portugues. However, the stilling basins were designed for 2500 cfs (Cerrillos) and 1100 cfs (Portugues), the bank-full capacities downstream. Therefore, considerable damage to the downstream exit channel will occur should it become necessary to pass the conduit design flow through the outlet works
Breakwater and revetment stability study, San Juan National Historic Site, San Juan, Puerto Rico : hydraulic model investigation by Dennis G Markle( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hydraulic model investigation was conducted using both two-dimensional and three-dimensional stability models at undistorted linear scales (model to prototype) of 1:38.5 and 1:50.5, respectively. The purposes of the stability tests were as follows: (a) Develop stable, economical and aesthetically pleasing designs for the offshore breakwater, north revetment, and west revetment to protect the San Juan National Historical Site from storm conditions that would generate depth-limited breaking waves at still-water levels (swl's) of 0.0 and +1.9 ft msl. (b) With the protective structures in place, determine the runup produced on the north and west slopes when exposed to a range of wave heights with wave periods from 7 to 17 sec at swl's of 0.0 and/or +1.9. (c) Both with and without the offshore breakwater and north revetment in place, expose the construction trestle to a range of wave periods and wave heights at swl's of 0.0 and +1.9 to observe the impact of the combined incident and reflected waves on the trestle and support pilings. Test results indicated that a two-layer system of 28-ton armor stone, placed on a 1V-on-2H slope using random replacement, would be an adequate design for the offshore breakwater
Mayport-Mill Cove model study. hydraulic model investigation by Noble J Brogdon( Book )

8 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fixed-bed model of Mayport-Mill Cove, constructed to scales of 1:500 horizontally and 1:50 vertically, reproduced a portion of the Atlantic Ocean adjacent to the entrance and the St. Johns River upstream to Hibernia Point. The purpose of the model study was twofold: (a) to investigate the effects of proposed improvement plans for the Mayport Naval Basin area on existing shoaling rates, hydraulics, salinities, and flushing; and (b) to investigate the effects of proposed improvement plans in the Mill Cove area on flushing, hydraulics, salinities, and channel shoaling. The model study was conducted in three phases: phase 1 involved the model verification tests, phase 2 involved the Mayport Naval Basin study, and phase 3 involved the Mill Cove study. Phase 2 is reported herein; phases 1 and 3 are reported in Reports 1 and 3 of this series. Based on model shoaling test results conducted for 11 proposed plans, four plans were selected on their merit to reduce shoaling within the basin for further, more extensive testing. Plans 1, 3, 4B, and 5B were tested extensively. MOdel test results showed that none of the four plans would cause any major change in and along the navigation channel with respect to existing current velocities, salinities, channel shoaling, or dye flushing; however, each plan did result in considerable changes within the basin. Surface current pattern photographs showed no adverse effects resulting from any of the four plans investigated extensively

Approximate upper limit of irregular wave runup on riprap by John P Ahrens( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes methods to calculate the approximate upper limit of runup on riprap revetments caused by irregular wave action. A formula to predict the maximum runup is developed from one laboratory study and compared to data from a second study. The formula is found to fit the data of both studies quite well. A slightly improved version of the formula is then developed by combining the data from both studies. The improved formula has little or no systematic error associated with structure slope, water depth, or wave conditions and is easy to use. Errors between predicted and observed elevations of the maximum runup had a root mean square value of approximately 12 percent. Keywords: Irregular waves; Prediction method; Revetments; Riprap; Runup

Large-scale operations management test of use of the white amur for control of problem aquatic plants : Report 4 : third year poststocking results: Volume VI : the water and sediment quality of Lake Conway, Florida by H. Douglas Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of the third annual poststocking period covering the 12-month period from September 1979-August 1980. The data collected during this period are compiled herein in a format similar to that used for the baseline report and the two previous poststocking reports. The compiled poststocking data are compared to the baseline conditions to determine if any significant changes have occurred as a result of the introduction of the white amur into Lake Conway. Subsequent to the introduction of the white amur, both total filterable and total unfilterable phosphorus underwent significant downward trends that presently appear to be becoming stable. Conversely, the gradual upward trend of chlorophyll-a continued during this period. Sediment quality data showed several changes from the baseline period. The mean total phosphorus concentration decreased 56 percent as compared to the baseline period. Conversely, mean copper and lead concentrations increased above baseline values. (Author)
