Abstract

Technological development of America's rivers, including the installation of more than 80,000 dams, has segmented the streams and fragmented their watersheds. A vision for the nation's rivers requires science and public policy that emphasize restoration and maintenance of the rivers'physical integrity to create a great river legacy for future generations. Physical integrity for rivers refers to a set of active fluvial processes and landforms wherein the channel, near-channel landforms, sediments, and overall river configuration maintain a dynamic equilibrium, with adjustments not exceeding limits of change defined by societal values
