Creek restoration project on the downstream 1000' where we are widening the channel and placing rip rap. Velocity in channel gets as high as 11-12fps. Install energy disipation measures at confluence with major waterway. Energy disipation includes wideing channel, placing larger rip rap, and possibly check dams. Are there certain velocities you want to meet before a waterway discharges into another?
