Abstract:

Because a knowledge of potential floods and flood hazards is important in land use planning, this report includes a history of flooding along Tonawanda Creek and identifies those areas that are subject to possible future floods, with special emphasis given to those floods through the use of maps and water surface profiles. While the report does not provide solutions to flood problems, it does furnish a suitable basis for the adoption of land use controls to guide flood plain development and thereby prevents intensification of the flood loss problem. It will also aid in the development of other flood damage reduction techniques to modify flooding and reduce flood damages which might be embodied in an overall Flood Plain Management program. Other types of studies, such as those of environmental attributes and the current and future land use role of the flood plain as part of its surroundings, would also profit from this information.
