Water suction pressure - Vacuum clean

Simply use the water pressure at the bottom of the Reservoir to vacuum up the debris and deposit it at the bottom of the reservoir using a horizontally dug pipeline.

Can you please give your opinion on the above mentioned materials?

I am interested in cooperating on barrier testing.

The aim of the cooperation would be to find the most suitable material for the barrier.

In the Challenge Webinar - Q&A Log, it mentioned that discharge of sediment into the downstream river is beyond the scope of this competition. Therefore, the strategy discussed in this topic might not fall into the scope. How do you think?

I think what they meant by saying it is beyond the scope of the competition is that we do not need to spend time analyzing the effects of the sediment downstream. They have said many times that sending sediment downstream is cost effective and beneficial in many ways. Permitting, sediment load and release timing are beyond the scope of the competition. They just want us to focus on how to remove the sediment from the reservoir.

Thanks! That will make sense.
May any staff from the HeroX team confirm it? Thanks in advance.

The focus of the competition is on the removal and transport of sediment. The acceptable discharge rate downstream will be river specific and you do not need to consider this discharge downstream.
