Application deadline closed.
Application deadline closed.

Job Description

1. Design river bank protection based on hydraulic assessment of energy, river form, soil type, peak river flow, expected maximum river channel scour depth and structural stability, etc.
2. Assess the physical characteristics of the land and stream, such as topography, soils, banks and channel geometry.
3. Evaluate channel stability in terms of aggradation and erosion.
4. Determine discharge, including flow frequency, depths, duration, and floodplain inundation. This would include low flows, mean annual flow peak, flood flows, groundwater recharge and discharge, flood events, and how discharge is affected by vegetation, floodplain connectivity, etc.
5. Determine the current channel form and sediment transport features.
6. Estimate future potential channel response to the proposed project
7. Undertake preliminary assessment of the foundation soil properties at Ganapatipule and Devbag sub-project footprint areas.
8. Prepare specification of geotechnical investigations at the reef location for Ganapati-pule subproject,
9. Interpret results of geotechnical investigations of the site to assess subsidence of the proposed reef and suitability of reef structure at the proposed location.
10. Specify geotextile to be used in dune construction/enhancement sub-project,
