This study investigated the water resource problems of the Westfield River Basin in southwestern Massachusetts and focused of the flood problem in Westfield. This growing city of 32,000 people is faced with the most serious flood threat of any community in the four-state Connecticut River Basin, due to its historic and extensive development of the flood plain. It is estimated that a recurrence of the flood of record of August, 1955 -- which caused 8 million in damages -- would today produce 100 million of damage. Author
