The report examines the relationships among hydraulic elements in the Atchafalaya Basin floodway system in terms of discharge regime, sediment load, channel form and size, flood control, water surface slope, bank elevation, overbank capacity, dredging requirements, and spoil disposal. Hydraulic geometry of the present main channel system is analyzed and the rate of natural channel development along the main channel is presented with the net change in channel cross-sectional area from changes in bed and flow line.
