Abstract: A study focusing on the primary conveyance system in the 5. 7 mi**2 Henry Street Drainage Basin in Hillsborough County, Florida was conducted to develop remedial measures for the control and future alleviation of existing flooding problems. This highly urbanized basin was hydrologically and hydraulically modeled on an IBM/AT microcomputer system using two computer programs: an application of the Santa Barbara Urban Hydrograph (SBUH) method and the USCOE's HEC-2. Alternative stormwater management plans such as channel and bridge improvements, elimination of utility conflicts, and additional detention areas were identified and evaluated for selected design storm events.
