Abstract: Channel improvements were completed in 1982 along approximately 8 miles of the Little Tallahatchie River just downstream of Sardis Dam. Heavy rains shortly after completion of the improvement prompted development of a program to monitor the response of the Little Tallahatchie River and its tributaries to the recent channel work. An analysis of the data collected since construction indicates some aggradation within the Little Tallahatchie Channel but no significant changes on the tributaries. More than 50 percent of the additional channel capacity gained through the improvements still exists in 1987.
