Abstract:

This report covered the flood situation along Mantua Creek from its confluence with the Delaware River near Paulsboro, N.J. upstream to its headwaters near Glassboro, NJ and includes the Edwards Run and Chestnut Branch tributaries. The information included a history of flooding along the creek and identification of areas which may be subject to future flooding. Special emphasis was given to possible future floods thru maps, photographs, profiles and cross sections. 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.
