Abstract : The purpose of monitoring the Demonstration Erosion Control (DEC) project is to evaluate and document watershed response to the implemented DEC project. Documentation of watershed responses to DEC Project features will allow the participating agencies a unique opportunity to determine the effectiveness of existing design guidance for erosion and flood control in small watersheds. The monitoring program includes 11 technical areas: stream gaging, data collection and data management, hydraulic performance of structures, channel response, hydrology, upland watersheds, reservoir sedimentation, environmental aspects, bank stability, design tools, and technology transfer. The purpose of work described in this Appendix is to develop a procedure for the design of pipe drop structures that will reduce the overall costs of hydraulic engineering and design for these features. Both the hydraulic and hydrology aspects of the design process are examined and modifications in the design process are recommended.
