An attempt to use old semicompiled data on turbidity, transport and deposition of suspended material is carried out. The influence of different activities is illustrated. The change of water chemistry during storage in new reservoirs, the influence of short periodic water release and the dam construction itself as a trap to the sediment transport are exemplified. The use of the Sundborg formula as an aid to predict the increased concentration of suspended material during dredgings is shown.
