    Description

    A project was designed to assess erosion and sedimentation associated with tracked vehicle training in the Ft. Knox Military Reservation in Kentucky. The project provided an extensive physical and biotic characterization of the training area, including hydrology, water quality, soils, and vegetation. To determine any changes in channel morphology, cross sections were established and surveyed in June 2008 and 2009 in the four stream channels. All four sampled streams experienced net erosion, losing between 0.31 and 44.45 m3 of sediment a year. Otter Creek, the final receiving stream for the training areas, was sampled weekly from March 2008 through December 2008 just before it entered the training area and upon exiting the training area. Stream TSS concentrations were greater exiting compared to entering the training area. Results will provide baseline data to assist in the development of a plan for sustainable management of the training areas.
