Description: Technical memorandum
Introduction: Dam No.36 is located in the Ohio River at a distance of about 10 miles above Cincinnati, Ohio (See Plate 1). Since this structure was placed in operation, complaints have been made by various navigation interests concerning the hazards to navigation which are said to exist in the pool immediately below this dam. The principal hindrances to navigation specified in these complaints are the eddy, or backlash, which/is formed under certain hydraulic conditions; the erratic shifting of the bar immediately below the dam; and a restoration to the navigable channel, caused by Coney Island Dike at open river stages. It is thought by some that this dike below the dam is one of the principal causes of backlash eddy.
