Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling

Abstract:

A case study is presented in which a sediment engineering investigation was conducted to determine the potential effects of a change in flow regulation on the channel downstream of a lake, and to develop measures to mitigate against these potential impacts. These alternatives included traditional bank protection measures, such as rock revetment, as well as non-traditional measures, such as a stream management plan.
