Last year the Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) and the Waterways Experiment Center (WES) incorporated the results from more than ten years of research and development into a new version of computer program HEC-6: 'Scour and deposition In Rivers and Reservoirs' (HEC, 1977). Because of the extensive modifications made to HEC-6, an entirely new User's Manual was also prepared. HEC released a Beta Test Version of the program in the fall of 1989, for field testing. Public release of the new version of HEC-6 is scheduled for September 1990. This paper describes the present status of the program as of April 1990, the expanded capabilities, and the improved documentation to be included in the forthcoming release of computer program HEC-6.
