Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate alternative measures and select a plan for insuring effective operation on the existing flood control project and providing flood protection to new unprotected development. Recurrent flooding of the Redwood River together with damaging overflows into the adjoining Cottonwood River basin has resulted in flood damages and the need for local emergency flood evacuation. The selected plan consists of channel widening, straightening, bank reshaping, levees, an overflow diversion structure with appurtenant control and outlet works, interior drainage works, aesthetic measure,s recreational facilities, and required relocations. The plan also includes revegetation of all disturbed areas. A 133-year degree of flood protection for the City of Marshall and adjacent urbanized areas would be provided. This report consists of a main report and two appendices.
