River Training and Sediment Management with Submerged Vanes

Library Holdings.

Submerged vanes are an unobtrusive and cost-effective way for water engineers to address many problems associated with sedimentation and river training. A relatively new technology, submerged vanes are a low-impact method for reducing erosion and downstream sediment buildup. Unlike weirs and dikes, submerged vanes bolster current efforts to "re-meander"—or make more natural—rivers that have been modified by humans.
