Short summary
Intensively cultivated landscape is the main non-point source of eroded sediment. The soil particles, carrying bounded nutrients and pollutants, cause both environmental and economic problems downstream. We did several flooding experiments in a typical rural drainage channel to show how the eroded sediment behaves in the headwater streams during spring and summer. We conclude that the channel behaves as a sediment trap during summer. In spring the sediment moves quickly.
