Abstract: This paper describes the development of the Dry Creek Watershed Flood Control Plan. This study was conducted to quantify the extent of the existing and future (buildout) drainage problems in the watershed. The HEC-1 and HEC-2 computer programs were used for this analysis, in addition to several special programs developed to aid in data manipulation and analysis. Proposed improvements include floodplain management; local, on-site detention basins, bridge and culvert improvements; regional detention basins; and channel and floodplain improvements.
