Abstract:

The portions of Bucks County, Pennsylvania covered in this report were subject to flooding from Mill Creek Rushland, Pa., Watson Creek and Lahaska Creek. Properties along these floodplains were damaged by floods of Aug. 1975. Aug. 1971 and June 1973. The study included a history of flooding in the Mill Creek watershed and described such floods thru 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 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
