River morphometry indicates the form or shape of a river, including its width, depth, slope, meander, and floodplain, and the grain size distribution of the bed. The empirical relationship, which estimates velocity, depth, and width, and takes the form of a power function with flow as the independent variable, has been developed and examined in various rivers by Leopold and Maddock (1953). 15 Water Transport Hydraulic design applications, such as bridge, culvert, dam, and channelization, can change the water transport pattern in rivers and streams.

Since the 1970s, there has been increasing attention paid to hazardous waste sites in the United States. Groundwater Contaminant Transport Mechanisms and Pollution Prevention 29 Before that, little was known about the vulnerability of groundwater that supplies freshwater to millions of people in the United States and around the world. It was common practice for industrial waste to be dumped randomly at the locations where they were being produced. Disposal practices such as injection wells and underground storage tanks were considered to be safe, but significant and sometimes severe leakage became a significant problem [19].
