      This event caused major changes in the mining laws of Pennsylvania today. According to section in the Pennsylvania Anthracite Coal act, just one of 1, sections; Maps of all mines should accurately show the boundary lines of the lands of the said coal mine or colliery and the proximity of the workings thereto, all pipelines, streams or other bodies of water, buildings and structures.   A river with a large volume can carry a lot of sediment. Compared with the volume of rivers like the Mississippi or the Nile, the volume of the Colorado is pretty small. But, during floods, its volume increases significantly. The Colorado River through Grand Canyon averages feet (91 m) across and about 40 feet (12 m) deep.

      The elevations of features and distances between points in the United States were determined from surveys and topographic maps of the U.S. Geological Survey or obtained from other sources. In most cases, the elevations were determined from surveys and from , and ,scale, minute topographic quadrangle maps. This applies to large scale river flooding: Minor Flooding—minimal or no property damage, but possibly some public threat or inconvenience; Moderate Flooding—some inundation of structures and roads near streams. Some evacuations of people and/or transfer of property to higher elevations are necessary. Major Flooding—extensive inundation.

during a flood, when the river’s velocity increases. Several features along a river are affected by this flow of water in different ways. A meander is a curve in a channel.

On the outside of a meander, the banks are subject to erosion as the water scours against them (Figure ). On the other.
