In recent years Old and Atchafalaya rivers have diverted increasing percentage of Mississippi River flow; observations have shown that distributary system is in state of imbalance in sediment transport capacity, which proves that flow capacity of Atchafalaya River can be expected to increase annually regardless of type of water year; tables and graphs show data on sediment transport and velocity relations.
