Abstract

The Cachí Reservoir on the Reventazón River is flushed on an almost yearly basis. A field investigation of the 1996 flushing was carried out by means of echo-sounding in order to elucidate from where in the reservoir the material originates, where and to what extent the released sediments will deposit along the river from the dam to the sea, and finally how this can be explained. A major factor in explaining the amounts and distribution of deposits was shown to be the phase lag between water discharge and suspended-sediment concentration peaks
