Abstract The report describes the scope and magnitude of water pollution problems caused by hydrologic modifications (dams, impoundments, channelization, in-water construction, out-of-water construction, and dredging). Types of pollutants released by each class of hydrologic modification are identified, and quantitative estimates are made of the amount of the major pollutant--sediment--that enters the Nation's surface waters as a result of highway and urban construction. Methods for controlling the release of pollutants from hydrologic modification activities are described, and the effectiveness of sediment control measures is estimated. Two 'loading functions' are developed for predicting the quantities of sediment released from construction operations of given magnitude and location. These functions are based on measurements of sediment yields and other parameters at 10 construction sites. The accuracy and limitations of the functions are analyzed. Measurement data from all classes of hydrologic modifications are reported in the 42 case studies of field projects summarized in the appendices of the report.
