What is the supposed purpose of cross blading rivers?.
From what i can find it would appear to be a counter productive exercise in terms of flood protection.

To rape the riverbed and kill every living piece of aquatic life if you ask me! Absolutely pointless destructive practice! Build rock groynes if you must and plant willows, but cross blading needs to be stopped... Wellington Regional Council seem to do it for kicks!...

Come to Hawkes Bay and see the brain dead council root raking all the rivers especially the Tutaekuri all in the name of flood protection.They have spent bloody millions on all their stupid schemes including concrete blocks, railway standards and wire etc. The list goes on. We just need another clown who wants to be a billionaire and dam some river when we have now 2 of the most polluted rivers in NZ.Day after day they collect their pay without accountability.Years ago they used to have team building exercises at Lake Tutira presumably until some person told them it was heavily polluted so over summer you cant go in it including dogs.

I ask cause supposedly it is to make the gravels more mobile across the riverbed.
But that would then fill any large holes,which tend to slow the water down,(reducing erosion) so all they seem to do is even out and effectively raise the riverbed, causing more flooding.
Am i wrong?

Cheers for that. I take it you mean that Viktor Schauberger guy, not the other "water wizard" peddling filtration systems?† Grin

Watching some youtube vids about him now.
