Dale Lentz. 2010. "Blue River Fish Barrier Hydraulic Model Study". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number HL-2010-02.

Abstract: A physical hydraulic model study was conducted on a proposed fish barrier weir for a remote site on the Blue River in eastern Arizona. The study evaluated the hydraulic characteristics of flow over the fish barrier and the resulting scour erosion at flows up to a 100-yr event. The study was used to improve the design of the structure to minimize scour and facilitate construction, since all construction equipment and non-local materials will need to be airlifted to the site.
