Abstract:

This report includes history of flooding on Ninemile Creek and identifies areas subject to possible future floods. Special emphasis is given to potential floods through maps, photographs, profiles, and cross sections. This report does not provide solutions to flood problems however, it does furnish a suitable basis for the adoption of land use controls to guide flood plain development to minimize future loss. The report will aid in the identification of other flood damage reduction techniques, such as flood proofing, which might be embodied in an overall flood plain management FPM program. Other aspects of FPM, such as studies of environmental attributes and the relation of land use in the flood plain to the surrounding area, would also profit from this information. Author
