Application of grade correction of a channel using rapid hydraulic structures (RHS) is a new tendency in modern river training. These structures meet both technical and ecological requirements. They decrease the longitudinal slope of the stream, differentiate the flow regime and dynamics, recreate the braided pattern of the channel and do not stop the migration of fish and macro invertebrates. Moreover, they mimic a pool and riffle channel morphology and thus conform with the requirements of the Water framework Directive of the EU. In this paper, we analyse chosen hydraulic parameters of a rapid hydraulic structure constructed in a gravel-bed Porębianka Stream, Polish Carpathians.
