Canals and pipelines

The TSC offers a wide variety of services to analyze and improve canal and pipeline performance, including:

Water Conveyance Group (86-68140) provides engineering support, including studies, design, and analysis, in water conveyance systems and facilities. This includes items such as:

Materials Engineering and Research Laboratory (86-68180) gives workshops on geosynthetics, canal lining, and seepage control.

Embankment Dams and Geotechnical Engineering Groups (86-68311, 86-68312, 86-68313) provide many types of geotechnical services for dams, canals, pipelines, and other waterways.

Hydraulic Equipment Group (86-68420) provides water delivery equipment.

Water Resources Planning and Operations Support Group (86-68210) performs canal system modeling and canal seepage testing analyses.

Lakes and Reservoirs

Environmental Applications and Research Group (86-68220) uses reservoir monitoring and research to assist in operating and managing many of Reclamation's 350 reservoirs and associated water systems. This ongoing research helps protect and improve reservoir water quality as well as related environmental, recreational, and fishery values.

River Systems

Water Resources Planning and Operations Support Group (86-68210) has developed the PRSYM Power and Reservoir Modeling System. This group also provides water resource engineering and hydrology technical analyses in studies of water availability and dependability. Our experts can help you with:

Sedimentation and River Hydraulics Group (86-68240) conducts reservoir surveys, monitors river/reservoir responses to change, and provides fluvial geomorphology studies.

To assess river behavior for engineering modifications and river restoration, the Flood Hydrology and Consequences Group (86-68250) provides statistical flood study support to the Sedimentation and River Hydraulics Group.

Land Suitability and Water Quality Studies offer water quality models for rivers, canals, and other waterways.
