A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF STREAM CHANNELIZATION AND BANK STABILIZATION ON WARM WATER SPORT FISH IN IOWA: SUBPROJECT NUMBER 1. INVENTORY OF MAJOR STREAM ALTERATIONS IN IOWA

Aerial photographs and public records were used to determine the amount of channelization of Iowa streams with drainage areas greater than 50 square miles. The extent of channelization was determined by measuring stream sinuosity. It is estimated that from 1000 to 3000 miles of streams have been lost in Iowa since settlers first arrived.
