Abstract:

This report presented flood plain information on Pompeston Creek, NJ. The main stream and its tributaries flow generally in a northwesterly direction entering Delaware River along the northern boundary of Riverton, N.J. Pompeston Creek and its tributaries drain an area of about 8 square miles. Rainfall, runoff, tide levels in the Delaware River and other technical data bearing upon the occurrence and size of floods within the study area were described. Maps and cross sections which indicate the extent of future flooding were also presented. 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 Burlington County Planning Board and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. 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
