Data and Report from S&T Project Number 1751: Impacts of Grade Control Structure Installations on Hydrology and Sediment Transport as an Adaptive Management Strategy

Study evaluates the impacts of Grade Control Structure (GCS) installations in an ephemeral drainage and attempts to identify whether GCS installations reduce sediment deposition in reservoirs, enhance local water resources, reduce stream velocities, support ecosystems, reduce microclimate temperatures and optimize watershed function as an adaptive management strategy.
