"Weir" in context

A weir is a man-made or natural obstacle constructed across a river in order to raise the river's water level or to divert the flow of water. It can be used to raise water level for irrigation, generate hydroelectricity, or as a measure of flood control. A weir usually has a notch or opening at the crest, which sets the efficient height for the weir, and has a broad base to increase stability. The amount of water passing a weir is measured by measuring the head of water above the crest. Weirs can also be used to create a visible barrier, typically in wildlife management or fisheries management.
