The agricultural flood prevention program on Sugar Creek, a tributary to the Washita River in Oklahoma, reduced flood peaks by more than 50%. The recession portion of hydrographs were lengthened. The structures reduced the infiltration on the flood plain by reducing flood peaks. The recession flow was increased by the number of detention reservoirs.
