Why do rivers not get deeper and deeper every year?

    In some cases they do. The Grand Canyon is a very good example of this. The water doesn’t necessarily get deeper, because there is a finite amount of water flow, but the earth will still erode. Rivers often fluctuate in depth due to storm runoff. As a river erodes into the earth, holes are filled with sediment from storms and upstream shore erosion.
