From the Introduction

"The purpose of this document is to provide a series of reference tools in the form of relationship plots, stratified by stream type, which characterize the inter-relationships of river morphology. The stratified characteristics are intended to be used in the planning and design of NCS restoration projects to assist in defining and designing the most probable form and function of a given channel."

Useful for:

Watercourse rehabilitation to minimize bank erosion and failure
Flood prevention and management
Bridge crossings/removal
Fish habitat rehabilitation and compensation
Agricultural drainage and maintenance
Watershed monitoring
Watershed planning
