I have obtained information (Q) from the closest USGS gage from the USGS website. In my research, I found a document titled "Computing Degradation and Local Scour" (Technical Guideline for Bureau of Reclamation). Is this something applicable to my project? Is the type of scour I need to analyze considered "local scour"? Also, I found an NRCS "Scour Calculations" document that I'm about to start reading through. Does anyone have any advice?
