The proposed plan for improvement Scheme 1 provides for channel enlargement of Turkey Creek from the Pocotaligo River upstream to station 24000 and for the implementation of flood plain management measures by the local community. The improved channel will have a length of 4.5 miles with bottom width varying from 60 feet at the outlet to 18 feet at station 24000. Required right-of-way will vary from 200 feet in the lower reach to 100 feet in the upper reach. Culverts and bridges will be modified or reconstructed to provide sufficient capacity for proper functioning of the designed channel. This report contains maps, profiles, and cross sections which indicate the extent of flooding that has been experienced and that which might occur in the future along Turkey Creek. From the maps, profiles, and cross sections, the depth of probable flooding at any location, by occurrence of the Intermediate Regional or Standard Project Flood may be learned. With this information, flood levels for buildings may be planned high enough to avoid flood damage, or other measures taken to minimize flood hazards.
