This section describes techniques, tools and tips for different types of work in waterways. They are all good options, but will not be the only solutions that will work. Always take the time to look carefully at your site and to gather ideas from others. If you create a new technique that works for your circumstances, then please contact us so that we can include it in future updates of this toolbox.
