What is Hydroacoustic Technology?
In general, hydroacoustic technology is technology that applies sound to water to collect data and information. When used to quantify discharge/depth relationships and flow velocities, hydroacoustic technology can improve the accuracy of hydraulic modeling. This ability to collect real-time field measurements of discharge and flow velocities is a recent and important advancement in our field, as it allows professionals to take specific, current measurements of ungaged streams and rivers quickly and easily.

Managing Urban Streams
Managing urban streams involves reducing floods and erosion and improving water quality. Flood and erosion control dominate most urban stream improvement projects, but often there are opportunities to simultaneously incorporate natural channel design features and improve water quality, urban habitat and aesthetics. The urban stream environment often prevents the design of a truly “natural” solution, but proper assessment of stream restoration activities can help reduce erosion and provide opportunities to improve a stream or creek’s natural...
