  • areas
  • In arid areas, check dams are often built to increase groundwater recharge in a process called managed aquifer recharge. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Rouge River begins in the Oak Ridges Moraine in Richmond Hill and flows past: Markham, northwest, central, to south, including a couple of conservation areas, the eastern edge of Scarborough and Rouge Valley Park. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are also seven natural areas in the creek's watershed, some of which contain rare species of plants and animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • rivers
  • The rivers falls within the jurisdiction of the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lance and I worked together quite a few times and I always enjoyed the time we spent together either working hunting details, management area hunts, night hunting and illegal hunting over bait or checking creel limits, size and fishing license on he Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers. (odmp.org)
  • support
  • Other licensed hunters and nonhunters are encouraged to purchase a Connecticut Duck Stamp to show their support for the conservation and acquisition of wetland habitats. (ct.gov)
  • system
  • rather, they are an ancient technique dating all the way back to the second century A.D. Check dams are typically, though not always, implemented as a system of several check dams situated at regular intervals across the area of interest. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because the typical high slope causes the flow velocity to move faster, a terraced system of multiple closely spaced check dams is typically necessary to reduce velocity and thereby counteract erosion. (wikipedia.org)

  • require
  • This is particularly useful for small settlements located far from a large urban center as check dams require less reliance on machinery, funding, or advanced understandings as compared to large-scale dam implementation. (wikipedia.org)
  • flow
  • A check dam is a small, sometimes temporary, dam constructed across a swale, drainage ditch, or waterway to counteract erosion by reducing water flow velocity. (wikipedia.org)
  • A check dam placed in the ditch, swale, or channel interrupts the flow of water and flattens the gradient of the channel, thereby reducing the velocity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Coarse and medium-grained sediment from runoff tends to be deposited behind check dams, while finer grains flow through. (wikipedia.org)

  • main
  • Check dams have traditionally been implemented in two main environments: across channel bottoms and on hilly slopes. (wikipedia.org)
  • result
  • Although some sedimentation may result behind the dam, check dams do not primarily function as sediment trapping devices. (wikipedia.org)
  • Such traditional conservation regimes may break down as a result of influences from the outside world. (springer.com)
  • built
  • Such consolidation check dams, built in terraces, attempt to prevent both headward and downward cutting into channel beds while also stabilizing adjacent hill slopes. (wikipedia.org)

  • Medicinal use of the pine needles also takes place, which also contain a natural insecticide, as well as a source for a dye. (wikipedia.org)
  • funding due
  • Accordingly, they are commonly used in degrading temporary channels, in which permanent stabilization is impractical and infeasible in terms of resource allocation and funding due to the short life period. (wikipedia.org)
