A cross section along the Upper Truckee River showing the river bed and bank movement for a period of 13 years.

The right bank has suffered over 40' of lateral erosion within that time period. You can also see that the river has

formed into a split channel and has developed a mid-channel bar. This particular cross section is just downstream

of a narrow bridge and the erosion is affecting important infrastructure for the golf course. Temporary treatment

has been installed along this bank to impede the progress of erosion.
