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

Poor Value

Best Value

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
