This project predicted changes to waterway hydrodynamics, salinity and bed morphology due to the removal of a weir used on control tidal conditions. A numerical model was developed as a decision support tool, to help understand how the tidal propagation, upstream freshwater inflows, saline intrusion, and the weir are interacting, and the potential changes if the breach through the weir was widened and/or shifted into a new location.
