Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project Objective: Improve management of freshwater resources by improving freshwater inflows to the Upper Nueces Delta. Conducted by Bureau of Reclamation. Constructed Nueces Overflow Channel and Rincon Overflow Channel. Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project: concluding report.

By United States. Bureau of Reclamation. Topics: Ecological surveys, Environmental conditions, Estuarine ecology, Nueces River. Perhaps the most significant effort was the Rincon Bayou Demonstration project which constructed an overflow channel (Fig.

2) that lowered the minimum flooding threshold for the upper portion of the Nueces Delta (U.S. Bureau of Reclamation ). Ecological and monitoring studies in the Rincon Delta has largely been funded by a variety of.

The Rincon Bayou pipeline became operation in September(BOR ) constructed a demonstration project to open an overflow channel at a depth of ft-msl from the Nueces River to Rincon Bayou, which is the main stem channel of the Nueces Delta marsh.

The purpose of the overflow. RINCON BAYOU SALINITY MONITORING PROJECT Introduction: This project was for the purpose of monitoring freshwater inflows by measuring salinities at various stations downstream of a diversion pipeline in order to calculate spatial and temporal environmental effects as well as the amount of freshwater needed to manage a healthier estuary.

The boundary for the lower Rincon Bayou is down-stream of the railroad bridge. The current study is restricted to the upper and central Rincon Bayou.

The study was designed to test for differences in time and space. Samples were taken quarterly be-fore and after the Rincon Bayou overflow channel. Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project: concluding report.

Restoring freshwater to the Rincon Bayou The first attempt to restore freshwater to the Nueces Delta was the Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project that was initi-ated in by the U.S.

Bureau of Reclamation (BOR). Rincon Bayou demonstration project The Nueces River channel bypasses the Nueces Delta and conveys nearly all freshwater inflows directly into Nueces Bay.

In the past, the Nueces Delta flooded often via a connection with Rincon Bayou. Because of natural processes the banks of the river are high, but based on historical accounts the delta flooded.

channel dug during the demonstration project; (2) construct a pipeline (Rincon Bayou pump station and pipeline) to convey up to 3, acre-feet per month directly to the Nueces Del-ta; and (3) implement an ongoing monitoring and assessment program to facilitate adaptive management for freshwater flow.

Analysis of the historic flow regime of the Nueces River into the upper Nueces Delta, and of the potential restoration value of the Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project. Appendix C Concluding Report: Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project.

Department of the Interior, Bureau of. The Rincon Bayou Pipeline became operational in and delivers Nueces River water to the Nueces Delta via the Rincon Bayou. Salinity was monitored during 3 pumping events to identify the spatial and temporal effects of the pumped freshwater to the Rincon Bayou Channel and to areas outside of the channel proper.

The spatial extent of the pumped freshwater lowered salinity beyond the Rincon. Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project Restoring Freshwater to the upper Nueces Estuary U.S.

Bureau of Reclamation Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project •To increase the opportunity for freshwater flow events into upper Nueces Delta via Rincon Bayou. The Bureau of Reclamation has conducted a demonstration project in Rincon Bayou/Nueces River delta marshes.

The project is designed to complement the ongoing Nueces Estuary Regional Wastewater Planning Study sponsored by the City of Corpus Christi, the state, and several local entities. Concluding report: Rincon bayou demonstration project. Volume II. Findings.

EOS, of the delta, it is referred to as the Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project.

The primary features of the Demonstration Project were two excavated channels: the Nueces Overflow Channel and the Rincon Overflow Channel (Fig.

These channels were completed in October The Nueces Overflow Channel was a cut. The Rincon Bayou Demonstration Project was. undertaken to determine if it was possible to ame-liorate environmental effects of decreasing fresh-water inflow (Bureau of Reclamation ).

2. Status Report-Rincon Bayou Diversion Project Mr. Danny Ybarra (City of CC) provided an update for the pipeline portion of the Rincon Bayou Diversion Project.

All construction activities have been completed, and the City has been conducting tests of the pumps to ensure all facilities are working properly. Construction of two dams in and reduced freshwater inflow events to Rincon Bayou, part of the Nueces Delta near Corpus Christi, Texas, USA.

Inflow reduction led to a reverse estuary, where low-salinity water flooded the delta on incoming tides and higher salinities were found near the Nueces River. The NOC was initially created as the primary diversion channel from the Nueces River into Rincon Bayou during a demonstration project funded by the Bureau of.

To evaluate the project’s potential effect on water quality, the U.S. Geological Survey used an enhanced version of a previously released Lake Houston hydrodynamic model. With a focus on salinity and water-surface elevations, the model combined data from to with simulated flow from the Luce Bayou Interbasin Transfer to evaluate.

This is a chronology of the late s, Joseph Smith, founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, announced that an angel had given him a set of golden plates engraved with a chronicle of ancient American peoples, which he had a unique gift to translate.

Inhe published the resulting narratives as the Book of Mormon and founded the Church of Christ in western New York. Overview The Elba Express Pipeline is a mile bidirectional system that transports natural gas between the Elba Island LNG terminal near Savannah, Georgia, and the Transco pipeline in Hart County, Georgia, and Anderson County, South Carolina.

of projects designed to restore the ecosystem in the delta. Particularly, there is a need to increase freshwater inflows to reduce high salinities in the upper areas of the delta. These high salinities are a result of reduced freshwater inflows from the Nueces River into the delta.

The purpose of the present study was to compare the nature of dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN=ammonium (NH4+) and nitrite+nitrate (NO2+3=(NO2–+NO3–)) release from aerobic sediment slurry at two different hydrologic flow regimes.

The watershed of the Guadalupe River–Estuary system receives more freshwater inflow than does the watershed of the Nueces River–Estuary system; thus. The channel is a widened and deepened natural watercourse created by dredging Buffalo Bayou and Galveston Bay.

The channel's upstream terminus lies about four miles east of downtown Houston, at the Turning Basin, with its downstream terminus at a gateway to the Gulf of Mexico, between Galveston Island and the Bolivar Peninsula. Major products, such as petrochemicals and Midwestern grain, are.The use of treated wastewater to restore freshwater inputs to arid and semi-arid wetlands is a relatively new concept, and the long-term effects of such practices on plant community structure are largely unknown.

We compared vegetation composition, pore water salinity, and soil moisture along permanent transects at a restoration site receiving wastewater effluent since October to three.
