A one-dimensional numerical model was used to determine the effects of sediment deposition in the Corte Madera Creek flood control channel. The effect of accumulated gravel deposits in the concrete-lined channel on hydraulic roughness was evaluated. The effect of a proposed sediment trap at the upstream end of the project on reducing gravel deposits was determined. The performance of the project during a design flood event was simulated.
