Identify the hard engineering approach to river management described below. New channels constructed to by-pass towns or other high-value land.
True or false? Constructing embankments involves raising river banks to create a larger cross-section enabling the river to hold more water.
Which of the following improves river navigation?
True or false? Reservoirs silt up over time increasing its storage capacity.
