This report covered the flood situation along the East Branch Perkiomen Creek starting from the dam located about 0.74 miles downstream from the Montgomery-Bucks County line, County Line Rd. and extending upstream thru the boroughs of Sellersville and Perkasie, 12.0 miles to its headwaters in Bedminster Township, Bucks County, Pa. It was based upon information on rainfall runoff, historical flood heights and other technical data bearing upon the occurrence and size of floods within the study area. Flood profiles, cross sections, maps and photographs were included. 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 the Bucks County 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
