Abstract : The report presents a recommended flood damage reduction project on the Conesus Lake outlet (Conesus Creek, N.Y.). Flooding of the Lake's perimeter has generally occurred in the spring, although the worst flood of record occurred in June 1972 as a result of Tropical Storm Agnes. The selected plan recommends constructing a new control structure, improving the outlet channel, and utilizing the natural storage capacity of the Lake. With this combination of structural improvements and lake level regulation, the project would protect against a flood which could be expected to occur once in 25 years. (Author)
