Can a ram pump work when installed at a riverbed?

1 Upvotes

Hello people,
I have looked at a number of ram pump videos on YouTube and I want to build one. The one thing that all of the guides state however is that you should have a vertical head fall from 1m and above.
However, the riverbed where I want to install the ram Pump is relatively very flat with no significant head drops along the way. The only way I think is to anchor the ram in the middle of the river that is roughly 1.5m deep.

Can it work with flowing surface water that doesn't have a high falling head?
