Abstract: The deposition of sediment in the inundated floodplains of rivers, particularly in their deltas, improves the water quality of the rivers themselves and of their receivers. It would be very useful if ways to increase the amount of sediment deposition could be identified. An investigation into a number of possibilities was carried out in the delta of the River Nemunas. Various factors can influence the increase or decrease of sediment deposition, e. g. the increase of water discharge flowing through the river valley, the growth of bushes on the floodplain, the building of road banks across the valley and changes in growth stages of grass (which affect its ability to entrap sediments). The effects of these factors are discussed, and the most successful ways for improvement in the Nemunas delta are proposed. Similar methods may also be applicable in other river deltas
