Hydraulic structures, roads, and bridges
Quality assurance (Hazardous waste)
- Water quality chemical analyses
- Water quality monitoring and improvement in both natural and regulated systems
Water Treatment Engineering and Research Group (86-8221) performs research and water quality analysis to improve desalting and water treatment systems and designs systems for desalting, treating water and wastewater, and remediating water containing hazardous chemicals and compounds.Results of these studies and tests are used to:
- Determine water quality
- Reduce costs associated with desalting and water treatment systems
- Optimize chemical usage; lower costs of operation and maintenance
- Determine the best water treatment methods and processes to meet client needs.
- Water Quality Modeling:
- Develop, implement and maintain water quality models for aquatic systems including reservoir and riverine
- Flow, temperature, chemical characterization, and aqueous contaminant transport.
- Streams, rivers, lake systems, ground water, reservoirs, and watershed interactions.
- Recent application of BETTER, QUAL2E, WASP, MINTEQ, and WetScape models.
- Water Quality Assessments to analyze the impacts or effects on water quality parameters resulting from structural (storage, diversion, etc.) or operational changes
- Water Quality data collection, summarization and analysis.
- Municipal, irrigation, and wildlife use suitability investigations.
- Water resources management and conservation.
- Water quality impacts of conservation activities.
- Water pollution control and prevention "Best Management Practices".
- Conjunctive use of surface and ground waters
The Water Resources Planning and Operations Support Group (86-68210) provides hydrologic analyses to help in water quality issues. For example, the group helped determine the eeffect of reservoir operations at Shasta and Keswick Dams, California on the dilution of mine wastewater flowing from the Iron Mountain Mine and conducted a hydrologic technical review of a permit application to construct a class 1 non-hazardous industrial solid waste landfill near Choke Canyon Reservoir, Texas.
The Sedimentation and River Hydraulics Group (86-8240) provides:
- Sediment yield estimates
- Sediment management plans
- Impacts to natural, physical rivers processes
- Future river channel predictions
