Abstract:

The Sugar Creek Basin Study has progressed to the point of identifying existing and anticipated future flooding problems and formulating potential structural and nonstructural alternatives for the reduction of flood damages within the Sugar Creek Basin. In order to formulate alternative plans of improvement, high damage areas were identified based on existing and projected future flood stages. Structural alternatives consist of a variety of flood control measures including channel modifications, bridge alterations, paved channels, covered floodways, levees, floodwalls and reservoir storage. Nonstructural alternatives, which generally consist of the evacuation of flood plain structures from the flood plain, have also been formulated for all damage areas within the basin. Plans which emphasize contributions to the improvement of environmental quality of the area and the National Economic Development will also be identified during the process of selecting a recommended plan of improvement.
