Abstract:

The purpose of the Tonawanda Creek Watershed, N.Y., Flood Management Feasibility Study is to develop and evaluate alternative plans to provide for flood and flood-related management needs in the Tonawanda Creek Watershed. In accordance with Corps policy, this study has been accomplished in two phases. During the first phase, all significant flood and flood-related management needs in the Tonawanda Creek Watershed were identified. Then measures to provide for those needs were identified and appraised. These measures were considered alone, and in combination, in development of alternate plans. The alternate plans were then evaluated and those which appeared viable were recommended for further study. During the second phase, those plans recommended for further study, and alternate plans introduced following completion of the first phase, were evaluated, and the optimum plan has been recommended for implementation. This report presents the findings of the second phase of study. Author
