Overview

The objectives of this project were to: 1) evaluate the present geomorphic condition of the Washita River through the Battlefield; 2) evaluate the adjustment of the present channel to the prevailing water and sediment supply to the channel, and how this adjustment has changed through time; 3) evaluate the likelihood that a modified channel similar to that which existed in 1868 could remain in equilibrium with the present conditions of flow and sediment; and 4) based on the findings of this study, develop conceptual alternatives for achieving a stable channel form and functional riparian system along distinct reaches of the river that are as close to the historic conditions as possible.
