Abstract : Potential flood control measures and associated water resources problems in the Woonasquatucket and Pawcatuck River Basins and Narragansett Bay Local Drainage area were studied as part of the Pawcatuck River and Narragansett Bay Drainage Basins (PNB) study. In the Pawcatuck River, major flooding has not occurred and can be prevented through preservation of the major wetland areas. The COE recommends the no action plan for the subject study areas. This means that nothing will be done by the Corps of Engineers and it is assumed that local communities will participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and enforce its requirements to control the future growth within flood plains.
