On river training

leave a comment »

Rivers are defied in the name of ‘training" budgeoned rather than ‘managed'( Pearce 1992)" No embankments on river training works in the world can control the forces of nature if they are taken head on "Rogers of Harvard University .
‘We can not control nature without obeying it ‘ Francs Bacon
Ex. A bend of river Mississipi was straightened to transport logs easily But thjis made river take an additional different easy path to sea brtanching off from the original course . So the "improved "course started carrying reduced flow
Gradually river engineers are learning that it is beyond human power to control nature .
Mark twain " Ten thousand river commissions with all the power in world can say to the river ‘gohere -go there’ and make it obey!
There are many examples .Intereste ones can search.
