Best Answer

A chute is a feature of rivers. It is a new short channel that cuts across the neck of land separating the two ends of an river oxbow. Chutes form when rivers contain a lot of energy from high volume flow and they cant be bothered to take the long way around. They essentially 'jump the curb' and cut a new short channel, called a chute.
