This report was prepared for the Lake Altoona Rehabilitation and Protection District to develop new conceptual strategies for sediment mitigation. The most important first step in this process was to establish a picture of the historical trends in sources and sinks of sediment supply and establish an accurate estimate of the annual magnitude of sediment loading of the lake. With this information new mitigation measures are discussed and future sediment data initiatives are recommended.
