Coordinates. The Driftless Area is a region in southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and the extreme northwestern corner of Illinois, of the American region escaped the flattening effects of glaciation during the last ice age and is consequently characterized by steep, forested ridges, deeply carved river valleys, and karst geology characterized by. a problem because of its wide, interconnected frac-tures and open conduits, almost any near-surface rock type will have fractures that can be problematic unless treated in design. (b) Groundwater Many U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) programs deal with the development, control, and protection of. 'joint', 'fracture' or other terms should be preferred in rock mechanics, engineering geology and rock engineering for those features forming the network of discontinuities in the rock masses. ISRM () has chosen 'joint' as this term defined as: "Joint is a discontinuity plane of natural origin along where it has been no visible displacement.". Chapter 4—Drainage Section 4A—Storm Sewer Design Page 2 of 10 A section of storm sewer connecting one intake or manhole to another is often called a “run” or “link”. A storm sewer system is designed from run to run. Design generally begins at the upstream end (or reach) of the system and proceeds down to the outlet.

Drainage pattern is the pattern formed by the streams, rivers, and lakes in a particular drainage are governed by the topography of the land, whether a particular region is dominated by hard or soft rocks, and the gradient of the land. Geomorphologists and hydrologists often view streams as being part of drainage basins. A drainage basin is the topographic region from which a stream.

Iroquois, any member of the North American Indian tribes speaking a language of the Iroquoian family. They occupied a continuous territory around the Lakes Ontario, Huron, and Erie in present-day New York state and Pennsylvania (U.S.) and southern Ontario and Quebec (Canada). The Andes are not a single line of formidable peaks but rather a succession of parallel and transverse mountain ranges, or cordilleras, and of intervening plateaus and depressions. Distinct eastern and western ranges—respectively named the Cordillera Oriental and the Cordillera Occidental—are characteristic of most of the system. The directional trend of both the cordilleras generally is. In addition to providing a level platform for forms or masonry, footings spread out the weight of the house so the soil can carry the load. The load spreads out within the footing itself at about a degree angle, and then spreads out in the soil at a steeper angle, more like degrees from the horizontal.
