Abstract : The purpose of this appendix is to present the design criteria procedures, and calculations associated with the design of the principal features of the Big Creek Flood Control Project. Preequissites tothis appendix are appendix A: Soil, Geology, and Construction Materials; Appendix B; Alternative Studies; and Appendix C: Hydrology and hydraulics. The results of the subsurface exploration program presented in Appendix A, established the general adequacy of the site for the flood control project. The field and laboratory testing program determined the various engineering properties of the project soils and borrow material required for the design analysis. In appendix B, various alternatives for the principal features of the project were studies, and an alternative was selected for final design. The water surface profile presented in Appendix C was used for setting the tops of the various containment structures, and the channel velocities presented in Appendix C were used for sizing riprap and gabron protection.
