Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water
Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Demonstration Erosion Control (DEC) project is actively involved in the stabilization and restoration of many drastically disturbed incising streams in the hill area of the Yazoo Basin, Mississippi. One of the primary objectives of the project is to reduce sediment loads in the stream. This paper presents considerations for determining the target sediment load of a stream, and analysis techniques for the design of restoration projects in incising streams.
