Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note describes the current knowledge of the potential impacts of river diversions on channel morphology, especially induced sedimentation in the river channel. Processes considered in this note are those most pertinent to riverine, as opposed to estuarine, aspects of diversions. In particular, this note provides general guidance on the physical process issues, outlines strategies for more effective application of existing tools, and summarizes the needs for developing better tools to address the issues. These issues become critical in the planning and design of diversions when the operation of these structures could adversely impact other authorized uses of the river.
