Abstract : Biological and physical data were collected from four bendways within the river portion of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway (TTW) from Columbus, Mississippi, to Demopolis, Alabama: Rattlesnake Bend, Cooks Bend, Big Creek Bendway, and Hairston Bend. During this study, the four bendways had not all been cut off and had been impounded for various lengths of time. At the completion of the TTW project, all four of the bendways will be severed from the main navigation channel. Four distinct areas within each bendway were compared: above the bendway, within the bendway, below the bendway, and within the cut. Sampling was conducted from January 1979 to September 1980 to coincide with four different river stage/water temperature regimes. (Author)
