SYNOPSIS

Rivers and lakes exist naturally due to geographical terrain while the canals were constructed by human. Sustainable management of water resources is a must, as water scarcity is becoming development constraint impeding the economic growth of many countries in the region. There are a number of elements within the marine and freshwater aquatic environments in which the effects of transportation activities may be felt. These effects and elements are not always present of universal concern. One needs to determine on a site, time and specific use whether the inland watercraft or the occupants are causing a problem. Direct effects of the inland watercraft and how they are operated are addressed. Often the presence of a large moving object or the activities of the people and the craft are the source of effects.

This paper discusses the physical effects of inland watercraft propulsion systems and waves generated on the sediments and banks on aquatic habitats in inland waterways system.
