Abstract:

A field inspection was conducted by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES personnel on 10 November 1976 to observe types and causes of bank erosion on the Yazoo River near Vicksburg, Mississippi. In the area that was inspected, the Yazoo River consists of a lower reach that has been straightened to improve navigation to the Vicksburgy harbor and an upper reach without any cutoffs, straightening, or bank protective measures. The inspection team started near the mouth of the Yazoo River at the Vicksburgy waterfront. The team proceeded upstream in a WES boat observing intermittent bank erosion for 20 miles.
