Example text

Storm sewers and roadways transport water quickly, and so may require the construction of retention ponds in an effort to retard the flood peak. 12). Flood peaks increase, time to peak shortens, and the peak becomes narrower (Paul and Meyer 2001). Because a greater fraction of the water is exported as runoff, less recharge of groundwater occurs, and so base flows are reduced as well. 12 Changes in hydrologic flows with increasing impervious surface cover in urbanizing catchments. ’’ Based on a large number of descriptors of flow variability and predictability, Poff and Ward (1989) identified ten distinctive flow regimes within the United States, including seven permanent and three intermittent stream types.

2 The Stream Channel The shape of the cross section of a stream channel is a function of the interaction between discharge and sediment, the erodibility of its bed and banks, the stabilizing influence of vegetation, and any large structure (boulders, large wood [LW]) that can influence local channel conditions. 7). Mean depth can then be estimated as area divided by width. The location of maximum depth within the channel is known as the thalweg. Channel shape and cross-sectional area will differ from transect to transect even within a reach, as some locations are wide and shallow, others narrow and deep.

LW has its greatest influence on first through fourth-order streams, where it has been found to increase width, form waterfalls, and stabilize gravel bars, as well as create pools (Bilby and Bisson 1998). Physical diversity in sand-bed channels is often depressed in reaches where wood has been removed (Shields and Smith 1992). 4 The floodplain A floodplain is a level area near the stream channel that is inundated during moderate flow and is constructed by the river under present climatic conditions by deposition of sediments during overbank flooding (Leopold 1994).
