Example sediment removal sites

It would be very useful if a few target cases could be described. It is recognized that there will be enormous variation from case to case but a few specific locations will help in the identification of key issues and opportunities.
Please include details such as;
- location
- reservoir area
- reservoir depth
- amount of sediment to be removed
- size and type of sediment to be moved - sand/mud, consolidated/loose, density, geochemical composition, presence of large pieces such as logs, sensitivity of wildlife
- seasonal nature of water flow
- access to roads and power supplies

Many Thanks

Привет!
Пожалуйста поправьте меня если я ошибаюсь. Я правильно понял, что проблема в следующем:
1. Осадки (шлам, глина, песок, ил) перед дамбами гидроэлектростанций, способы чистки и предотвращение их накапливания;
2. Осадки (шлам, глина, песок, ил) в неглубоких реках, способы чистки и предотвращение их накапливания;
3. Осадки (шлам, глина, песок, ил) в водохранилищах, способы чистки и предотвращение их накапливания.
Или на сайте решение проблем происходит локальное по конкретной проблеме?

Ruslan -- Translation is= Hello! Please correct me if I'm wrong. I correctly understood that the problem is as follows: 1. Sediments (sludge, clay, sand, silt) in front of hydroelectric dams, methods of cleaning and preventing their accumulation; 2. Sediments (sludge, clay, sand, silt) in shallow rivers, methods of cleaning and preventing their accumulation; 3. Sediments (sludge, clay, sand, silt) in reservoirs, methods of cleaning and preventing their accumulation. Or does the site solve problems locally for a specific problem?

You are correct. I am looking at using the water depth behind the dam to power suction that will allow the vacuuming up of the Sediments into a flexible tube which will be connected to a horizontal pipeline at a 1 to 3 percent grade down and around the dam to have the Sediments separated as needed and water end up in the water body to continues on.

You may have seen the update posted earlier; however, I wanted to make sure I brought your attention to the case studies we recently posted here: https://www.herox.com/GuardiansoftheReservoir/resources
