Get this from a library. Management of coarse sediment on regulated rivers. [G Mathias Kondolf; W V Graham Matthews; California Water Resources Center.] There are significant problems in the management of coarse sediment (sand and gravels) in regulated rivers of California.

Unfortunately, these have been generally treated (or ignored) on a case-by-case basis, however, the effects are pervasive and profound, 1 Introduction Reduced Sediment Loads Downstream of Dams.

Dams interrupt the continuity of sediment transport through rivers systems, causing sediment to accumulate within the reservoir itself (impairing reservoir operation and decreasing storage) and depriving downstream reaches of sediments essential to maintain channel form and to support the riparian :// Abstract.

Many tools have been developed to more effectively manage sediment in rivers By trapping sediment in reservoirs, dams interrupt the continuity of sediment transport through rivers, resulting in loss of reservoir storage and reduced usable life, and ?scrollTo=references.

Nevertheless, the same spatial pattern was revealed by both data sets.

Along both regulated rivers, the proportion of the substrate finer than 2 mm exceeds 20 per cent, by weight, below tributary confluences, contrasting Although sediment is widely recognized as a common pollutant in rivers, the diversity of natural sediment transport rates among rivers has made setting sediment-related water quality standards problematic, especially in view of rivers such as the Colorado and the Missouri and their tributaries, in which natural aquatic ecosystem processes have   rivers with beds composed of sand or fine gravel that can still be mobilized by the regulated flows; aggradation due to sediment inputs to the river that it is no longer competent to move downstream, the most common source being tributary inputs of rela-tively coarse sediment (e.g., Petts, b).
