River Training Works

In order to improve the navigability of a waterway, river training works are often essential. The main objective of river training/protection works is to prevent the river from damaging structures like bridges, barage and protection of river banks . Other various objectives of the river training works are

·  To guide the axis of flow at ordinary and low stages and safe passage of floods without overtopping the banks
·  To protect the banks from erosion and generally improve their alignment
·  To confine a river channel which has become too wide by swinging from side to side and to reclaim the land from river bed
·  To train the river flow along a safe course
·  To provide sufficient depth of flow for safe navigation

       · To correct disorderly banks or flow conditions
