Abstract:

The report presents the results of a detailed study of flooding conditions along Beaver Brook in the eastern side of Keene New Hampshire. Frequent flooding along the brook has an average of 460,000 in damages annually. During the investigation several alternative plans of flood protection were examined for their economic and engineering feasibility. The report recommends construction of a 1.6 million plan of flood control improvements consisting of a modified outlet structure at 3 mile swamp upstream of the city, and 1700 linear ft. of channel improvements within the city limits.
