Watershed Management in Northern Tehran



-          Location: Heights overlooking Jamshidiyeh Park (Hessarak Niavaran)

-          Operations: Watershed engineering or management includes series of operations required for creation of an appropriate ground for biological operations, creating an equal flow of water through eliminating the slopes or reducing the speed of flow, controlling erosion and sedimentation, direct and indirect collection and supply of water, and controlling flood. Watershed management pursues multifaceted goals some of which are mentioned below:

1-      Erosion and sedimentation control, and reducing related losses

2-      Boosting penetration capacity of soil and protecting water and soil resources

3-      Preventing the outbreak of destructive floods

The following operations are carried out within the framework of the project for watershed management in northern Tehran:

1-       Construction of dry embankment: These structures are chiefly constructed in first- and second-class waterways. Geological formations, abundance of stone, slope and access-way are serious impediments to creation of such structures. These structures are normally 1-1.5 meters high.

2-      Gabion check dams: Gabion is a cage, cylinder, or box filled with rocks, concrete, or sometimes sand and soil for use in civil engineering, road building, dam construction, etc. This structure is made of woven wire and rock. 

Operations: The operations for construction of 465 cubic meters of stone-gabion structures in flood-stricken zones and waterways have been carried out. Some 127 cubic meters of dry embankments have been made in auxiliary waterways. Also 98 cubic meters of apron has been constructed.
