Abstract:

This report documents the results of an investigation to determine the potential flood situation along Pleasant Creek within the Village of Evans Mills, NY. Although flood insurance rate maps have been developed for the community, approximate analyses were used to delineate an approximate flood plain along Pleasant Creek. The area was thought to have low development potential at the time the maps were prepared. The area now, however, is experiencing residential development pressure resulting from the expansion of the nearby Fort Drum military complex and more detailed flood plain information is required by local officials to manage this development.
