This report studied the flooding conditions and areas in Northampton County Pa. around Plainfield and Palmer Townships and the Boroughs of Nazareth and Stockertown along the Little Bushkill and Shoeneck Creeks. It included information about flood potential and flood hazards and identified those areas which may be subject to future floods. Special emphasis was given to technical data thru the use of maps, photographs, profiles and cross sections. Under authority of Section 206 of the 1960 Flood Control Act as amended the flood plain information was prepared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District at the request of Lehigh-Northampton County Join Planning Commission. The information should be considered for its historical nature. Since the publication of this FPI report other Flood Insurance studies have been undertaken and should also be consulted for more current information. Author
