Sediment Augmentation Experiment Feasibility Analysis, Design and Permitting

Project Client: Platte River Recovery Implementation Program
Project Location: Central Nebraska
Project Categories: Other Water Resources

The Platte River Recovery Implementation Program (Program) is investigating the potential of achieving sediment balance in the Platte River downstream of the J-2 Return. Achieving sediment balance is a key component to the Program’s Flow-Sediment-Mechanical strategy. As such, the consulting team of The Flatwater Group, Mussetter Engineering-Tetra Tech and HDR were hired to conduct a sediment augmentation feasibility analysis, develop final augmentation design/construction documents, obtain necessary permits, and develop monitoring and assessment protocols.

The Program’s GC intends to test the feasibility of sediment augmentation to help achieve sediment balance at or above a point immediately upstream of the Cottonwood Ranch habitat complex. This sediment augmentation test will meet the Program’s specific sediment-related experimental objective for the period of 2009-2013.
