Wikipedia definition
2. WeirA weir is a barrier across a river designed to alter the flow characteristics. In most cases, weirs take the form of a barrier across the river that causes water to pool behind the structure (not unlike a dam) but allows water to flow over the top. Weirs are commonly used to alter the flow regime of the river, prevent flooding, measure discharge and help render a river navigable.
