Final Sediment Augmentation Pilot Study Report

A Sediment Augmentation Experiment Alternatives Screening Study (Screening Study) was conducted to evaluate alternatives to reduce the approximately 150,000-ton/year average annual sediment deficit in the Platte River reach between Lexington and Odessa, Nebraska. The Screening Study recommended that a Pilot Study be conducted to evaluate the means and methods of sediment augmentation as a way to reduce uncertainties associated with full-scale implementation.
