Abstract:

Two study areas are involved for this reconnaissance level investigation of Mississippi River flooding. The first area is the village of Hull. The second area is bounded by the upper reach of the Sny Island Levee Drainage District SILDD levee from its upstream tie-off near Fall Creek, Illinois, through the Hadley-McCraney Diversion Channel levee. This levee was constructed to provide protection to the 50-year event level. Hull lies within this reach of SILDD. This reconnaissance report presents the results of analyses of possible solutions to reduce damages from Mississippi River flooding in Hull. Plans considered include ring levee alignments around Hull, raising the upper reach SILDD main stem levee, and nonstructural flood damage reduction measures. This reconnaissance study concludes that additional flood damage reduction measures for Hull are not economically feasible and that further Federal participation is not warranted.
