Flow Routing in the Susquehanna River Basin: Part III -- Routing Reservoir Releases in the Tioga and Chemung Rivers System, Pennsylvania and New York

Description: From abstract: Channel-routing models were used to route hypothetical releases from reservoirs in the upper Tioga River basin, Pennsylvania. These releases were routed northward down the Tioga River to Lindley, Erwins, and Corning, New York; combined with flows routed down the Cohocton River from Campbell to Corning, New York; and then routed southeastward down the Chemung River from Corning to Chemung, New York. The models used to route the flows of Cohocton and Chemung Rivers accounted for bank-storage discharge and streamflow depletion by well pumpage. In general, 17 years of concurrent streamflow data were available for model calibration and verification.

Technical Manual For Estimating Low-Flow Frequency Characteristics of Streams in the Susquehanna River Basin

Description: Abstract: This report presents procedures for estimating low-flow frequency characteristics for streams in the Susquehanna River basin. The techniques can be used at ungaged sites as well as sites where insufficient data are available to make a reliable estimate. Streams have been divided into two types major and minor. Major streams are the Susquehanna, West Branch Susquehanna, Juniata, and Chemung Rivers. Points on these streams with drainage areas of more than 2,000 square miles (5,180 kilometers) are included in this category. Points on these streams with drainage areas of less than 2,000 square miles fall into the minor stream category. Generally minor streams are herein defined as those draining less than 2,000 square miles (5,180 kilometers). Multiple-regression techniques have been used to develop relations for estimating the 1-, 3-, 7-, 30-, and 183-day duration low flows at recurrence intervals of 10, 20, 50 and 100 years for annual series data and the 1-, 3-, 7-, and 30-day duration low flows, at the same recurrence intervals, for six individual months, May through October, inclusive.

Regional Stochastic Generation of Streamflows using an Arima (1, 0, 1) Process and Disaggregation

Description: From abstract: An ARIMA (1, 0, 1) model is used to generate annual flow sequence at three sites in the Juniata River basin, Pennsylvania. The study was designed to analyze low-flow frequency characteristics of a basin. The model preserves the mean, variance, and cross-correlations of the observed station data.

Buried Valley of the Susquehanna River: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines regarding a buried valley area (a deposit of clay, sand, and gravel) around the Susquehanna River in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania, near the city of Wilkes-Barre. According the the introduction, "The purpose of this report is to furnish data on the buried valley of the Susquehanna River that will be useful in solving the anthracite mine-water problem" and "This report (a) discusses the physical characteristics and the influence of the buried valley of the Susquehanna River on anthracite mining in the Wyoming Valley area of the Northern field, (b) correlates pertinent data relating to the buried valley, (c) presents accurate contour maps showing the position of the top of solid rock underlying the water-soaked valley-fill deposits in the buried valley, and (d) presents cross sections at regular intervals across the buried valley showing the irregularities in trend and bottom as well as the thickness, configuration, and nature of the materials composing the water-bearing valley-fill deposits" (p. 3).

Mine Flood Prevention and Control: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania, Final Report of the Anthracite Flood-Prevention Project Engineers

Description: Summary: "The engineering survey, summarized in this report, consisted of studies on acid mine water, underground-water pools, the "buried valley" of the Susquehanna River, inundated anthracite reserves, mine pumping plants, surface-water pools, seepage of surface water into mines, barrier pillars between mines, and geologic features of the region that included core drilling along alinement of the proposed Conowingo tunnel and to some extent along the proposed Marcus Hook alternate tunnel route. A comprehensive study was conducted to determine corrosion and erosion resistance of selected metals and alloys and to ascertain their suitability for components of pumps to be used in handling acid mine water."
