Abstract:

The Main Report is a general, non-technical presentation of a feasibility study of four alternative schemes for flood control and other desirable improvements along Ellicott Creek. These four alternatives have been selected for Phase 2 detailed study from a total of thirty alternatives initially examined in Phase 1 of the Review Survey. The selection has been made on the combined basis of general public desire as expressed at public meetings, after open discussion with civic groups and organized, responsible societies, and the professional considerations of Consultant and the Buffalo District Corps of Engineers. The Environmental Impact Assessment describes the factors and considerations and conditions affecting Basin residents now, and the changes, for good or ill, which the proposals will cause.
