Channel Improvements & Stablization
Stabilization and protection of the riverbanks are important to the flood control and navigation components of the MR&T project. Channel improvement and stabilization measures serve to protect flood control features and to ensure the desired alignment of the river's navigation channel. This is accomplished by the following:
- Cutoffs - to shorten the river and reduce flood heights
- Revetment - to stop the river's meandering
- Dikes - to direct the flow and deepen the channel
- Improvement - dredging to realign the channel.
