The Jordan River…Size Matters
The Jordan River has changed in size, shape and function over the past century. In that same time span, the river's ability to convey water, sediment and process pollutants has also changed. Is there a significant nexus between the morphological divergence and the river's water quality degradation? This presentation will explore the possible nexus and a pilot program to test this hypothesis and implement the Jordan River TMDL.
