According to sciencedaily.com, sediment is "any particulate matter that can be transported by fluid flow and which eventually is deposited as a layer of solid particles on the bed or bottom of a body of water or other liquid." To many in southern California, however, it means so much more. Sediment makes up our beaches, creates habitat, forms our rivers and blocks our dams. How we manage it speaks volumes to our ability to interact with and benefit from our natural environment.
