A weir is a small dam built across a body of water, such as a river. We use them to help control the flow of water. Weirs can help raise the water level so that boats can pass through, and they can also reduce the flow of water to prevent flooding. So, it is vital that you have a strong concrete weir wall in order to effectively control the flow. There are several different types of weirs in use so it is crucial to know how each controls the flow of water. Here are the different types of weirs and why concrete weir walls are so important.
