Abstract—A well and exact documentation of the methodology and novel implementations of a river training work can pave the way for future economic, established and cost effective paradigm to work with. The paper describes contemporary practice for river training works, as well as site specifics, obstacles, costs involved and management exercises, along the Padma River, the main distributary of the river Ganges. A map of the riverbank erosion along the study area is provided in order to extract proper and useful information about the morphological nature of the river. Then the technical aspects for bathymetric survey along with the application procedure used for dumping and placing of geo-bag and CC block along the riverbank for its protection is described. After that, some of the concerns and challenges that were encountered by the team, which was working there, are discussed. It was found that the project would have benefited if the technical and instrumental risks in addition to the uncertainty of workers were taken into account beforehand. A cost analysis table is also provided to give information about the estimated expenditure for future projects.
