Consequences Of Instream Gravel Mining

Geomorphic and environmental effects of instream gravel mining

Instream gravel mining commonly causes incision of the channel bed, which can propagate upstream and downstream for kilometers. As a result, bridges and other structures may be undermined, spawning gravels lost and alluvial water tables lowered.

Instream sand and gravel mining: Environmental issues and ...

Abstract Sand and gravel are widely used throughout the U.S. construction industry, but their extraction can significantly affect the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of mined streams. Fisheries biologists often find themselves involved in the complex environmental and regulatory issues related to instream sand and gravel mining.

Instream Gravel Mining and Related Issues in Southern Missouri

Instream gravel mining may be linked to loss of fishery resources and wetlands, increased bank ero­ sion, and damage to infrastructure caused by channel degradation. The extent to which this potential is real­ ized depends on the hydrologic char­ acter, sediment load, and riparian condition of a stream.

Gravel mining in a river channel spreads out the river water. This shallowing causes increased sideways erosion resulting in bank collapse. Bank collapse increases the amount of fine sediment in the river, decreases the amount of shading and increases the temperature of the water.

Impacts of Sand Mining

Excessive instream sand-and-gravel mining causes the degradation of rivers. Instream mining lowers the stream bottom, which may lead to bank erosion. Depletion of sand in the streambed and along coastal areas causes the deepening of rivers and estuaries, and the enlargement of river mouths and coastal inlets.

This paper examines the effects of gravel mining on the suspended sediment transport in the Upper River Cinca (Central Pyrenees). Discharge, sediment transport and sediment grain-size distribution were measured, sampled and further determined in five monitoring sections along a 5-km river reach. Samples were taken at a section upstream from the mined area (i.e. reference

Geomorphic and environmental effects of instream gravel mining

Abstract Instream gravel mining involves the mechanical removal of gravel and sand directly from the active channel of rivers and streams. Active channel deposits are desirable as construction aggregate because they are typically durable (weak materials having been eliminated in river transport), well-sorted, and frequently located near markets or on transportation routes.

environmental effects of sand and gravel mining on land and

The most important effects of instream sand mining on aquatic habitats are bed degradation and sedimentation, which can have substantial negative effects on aquatic life. The stability of sand-bed and gravel-bed streams depends on a delicate balance between streamflow, sediment supplied from the watershed, and channel form. 1.
