The Waterway Wizard is a Utility within the EFT software that allows the user to input waterway design parameters for a single reach and checks tractive stress and capacity. It provides outputs of velocity, bottom width, and required depth. It is a an abbreviated version of the full Waterway Design Tool (WDT) within EFT. There are no survey inputs (only proposed grade and desired dimensions) and no graphical outputs such as profiles or cross-sections.
