Abstract

Using Texas as an example area, this paper highlights the role of small- and medium-sized dams in affecting the surface hydrology of river systems. The major impact of these smaller dams is fragmentation of river landscapes. Such extent of river fragmentation can degrade stream habitats and pose barriers to the migration of aquatic species and transport of sediment. Because small and medium dams are largely built for fire protection and stock ponds, mitigating the impacts associated with these dams likely involves working with the private individuals who own them
