This paper represents the updating of Chapter 7 for Manual 54. There has been considerable change in legal rulings and precedent law since the first edition of Manual 54. Many of these new interpretations have involved engineers and scientists and we believe all of those involved in analyses and design of sediment transport and flood control facilities should be aware of these new legal concepts.
