    Okay so think about if the load is heavy, the water isnt going to be able to lift it as much so it might bounce (saltation) it or roll (traction) it along the bottom of the river banks. This action will cause the river banks to be eroded by the rocks whilst they are moving. So this will cause lateral erosion. Material that is suspended in the water such as small rocks might get hit off the river sides and this could cause the river to erode and become wider over time. Hope this helps a little
