Abstract:

This report covered the flood situation along Red Clay Creek from its confluence with White Clay Creek South of Stanton, Dela. upstream to the Pennsylvania-Delaware state line near Yorklyn, Delaware. It included information on rainfall, runoff, historical flood heights and other technical data bearing upon the occurrence and size of floods within the study area. Maps, profiles and cross sections which show the extent of floods which may occur in the future were also described. 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 New Castle County Department of Planning. 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
