Such structures include dams, levees, bridges and embankments for railroads and highways, andCited by: 8. FEMA lists flooding as the most familiar and frequent natural disaster in Alabama.

From toinsured flood losses totaled more than $ million (FEMA fact sheet ). Residents living on Alabama’s coast are at a heightened flood risk during hurricane.

The Hydrological Simulation Pro-gram-FORTRAN (HSPF) was applied to an urban drainage basin in Jefferson County, Ky to integrate the large amounts of information being collected on water quantity and quality into an analytical framework that could be used as a management and planning tool.

Hydrologic response units were developed using geographic data and a K-means analysis to characterize.

Owing to its proximity to two major waterways, Birmingham has experienced repetitive flooding in some local communities, including the Village Creek floodplain.

Many of the homeowners in these areas felt trapped by the floods: they could not sell their homes in the floodplain and did not have the resources to fix them.

The city used FEMA grants to acquire homes and turn the land into open. and minimizing channel vegetation on the creek mainstream as well as tributaries.

Urbanization has outpaced flood control on Mingo Creek. Although Mingo Creek has had a long history of flooding, flood control began only within the last decade.

Without federal support initially, the City of Tulsa has had to fund local flood control projects.

Assessment of water-quality conditions in Fivemile Creek in the vicinity of the Fivemile Creek Greenway, Jefferson County, Alabama - Simulations of the effects of U.S. Highway and the proposed Montgomery outer loop on flooding in the Catoma Creek and Little Catoma Creek Basins near Montgomery, Alabama.

A one-dimensional step-backwater model was used to simulate flooding conditions for Catoma Creek near Montgomery, Alabama. A peak flow of 50, cubic feet per second was computed by the U.S. Geological Survey for the March flood at the Norman Bridge Road gaging station.

Using this estimated peak flow, flood-plain surveys with associated roughness coefficients, and surveyed high.
