A cvs file containing field datasets used to develop regression models to predict sediment and nutrient retention services for stream within the Difficult Run watershed. Field measurements of floodplain deposition and bank erosion were provided in previously published datasets from Hupp et al. (2013) and Gellis et al. (2017). At each field site 3-5 nearby cross-sections from the Toolbox where used to represent the floodplain and streambank sampling locations at the field sites. Metrics derived from the Toolbox are provided in this data table.
The Anaconda and Union City Dams oil the Naugatuck River in Connecticut were removed in February and October 1999. A detailed Study of the sites prior to removal was undertaken including sediment testing and predictions Of upstream channel formation post-darn removal. The 3.35-m-high timber crib/rock fill spillway of the Anaconda Dam partially breached during a storm prior to the dam's scheduled removal allowing a portion of the impounded sediment to move down through the river system. This event changed the removal plans and the remainder of the spillway was removed under an emergency order in the course of 4 days. The Union City Dam, a 2.44-m-high timber crib/rock fill dam capped with concrete and stone, was removed...
