Computer modeling for water quality
Water Treatment Group (86-68190) performs water quality analysis, treatment solutions research, and design of water treatment systems, including desalting, wastewater reuse, and remediation of water containing hazardous chemicals and compounds. Results of these studies and tests are used to:
- Determine water quality and potential treatment solutions
- Reduce costs associated with desalting and other water treatment processes
- Optimize chemical usage; lower costs of operation and maintenance
- Determine the best water treatment methods and processes to meet customer needs
- Water quality chemical analyses
- Water quality monitoring and improvement in both natural and regulated systems
- 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
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.
Sedimentation and River Hydraulics Group (86-68240) provides:
- Sediment yield estimates
- Sediment management plans
- Impacts to natural, physical rivers processes
- Future river channel predictions
