Backwaters – A backwater is a section of a river where the current is weak or nonexistent. In particular along the meanders of old rivers, backwaters can produce swamps or shallow lakes. Backwaters can also be the result of recent flooding or a temporary obstruction like a dam, either natural or man-made. A slough is an illustration of a wetland produced by a backwater.
