Italian term or phrase: restituisce interamente la sezione all’alveo
The above phrase is from a description of a temprary, inflatable dam/weir:-

"Quando lo sbarramento non è in funzione, la struttura afflosciata, restituisce interamente la sezione all’alveo, garantendo il passaggio di acqua e detriti"

Completely restores the stream flow crosssection?? Sounds a bit clumsy. Is thera a snappier way of saying this?
