Abstract:

A sediment impact assessment study was conducted to evaluate the potential for bank erosion adjacent to a proposed levee along the San Francisco River in Clifton, AZ. Degradation potential was evaluated using a one- dimensional numerical sediment transport model. Historical data and a field reconnaissance were used to evaluate historical stability of the river. Generalized empirical regression equations were employed to evaluate potential for channel widening. The study identified zones along the levee where erosion potential was high.
