Blue river flood conveyance channel
Blue River Flood Conveyance Channel

  • 35,000 cfs Flood Control Channel

  • New Bridges

  • Remapping of Floodplain


  • 3rd Battle of Byram’s Ford

  • Concrete Grade Control Structure




Stated goals
Stated Goals

  • Prevent the headcutting at the battlefield location

  • Limit maximum flood elevation to pre-project conditions

  • Control velocity upstream to manage scour along the riverbanks


Design
Design

  • The structure was designed to stop head-cutting and control flood elevations upstream to pre-project conditions which in turn aided in managing scour at the battlefield location and along the riverbanks by controlling velocity.


Externalities
Externalities

  • Construction of the grade control structure would affect the channel upstream of this project and create pre-project conditions, i.e., flooding in areas that had not experienced flooding since the channel project began would now be flooded again.

The Value Ah Ha!

  • The current flood levels can be maintained to limit maximum flood elevation to below pre-project conditions

  • Grade controls can be distributed along the river rather than at a concrete waterfall
