Abstract : A sediment impact assessment was conducted for the San Juan River and tributaries, near Farmington, New Mexico, as part of a reconnaissance-level planning study. The purpose of the study was to evaluate each of four rivers' current conditions, to identify the magnitude of sediment problems associated with proposed flood control projects, and to recommend appropriate sediment studies for the feasibility-level planting study. The study employs the sediment budget approach to assess channel stability in the study reach. Total sediment yield estimates were made for determining potential aggradation and degradation zones. Recommendations for more detailed sediment studies were made. (AN)
