"Weirs" in context

Weirs are structures, typically made of metal sheets or concrete, which are assembled and erected in the course of river engineering works. Weirs are constructed across rivers to regulate the flow of the water, and can alter the flow pattern, the amount and rate of flow, and the velocity of the water. Weirs are most commonly used to raise the water level upstream and to regulate the flow downstream. They can also be used to control soil erosion and other forms of water pollution. Weirs can also be placed in the flow of streams or rivers to open or divert the flow.
