Abstract : Studies performed for this report were intended to identify water resource needs of the study area, to develop alternative solutions to the problems and needs identified, and to select a flood control plan that maximizes benefits to the surroundings community within the guidelines established by federal laws and policies. The plan recommended for selection (Plan 4) consists of an inlet structure, a rectangular concrete channel, an outlet structure, a 1300-foot long covered section and five box culverts. This plan would provide 100-year flood protection, with peak discharge of 6,200 cubic feet per second, through lower Los Coches Valley and the community of Lakeside. The entire project length is 2.1 miles.
