Abstract : Based on the results of this reconnaissance evaluation, it is concluded that sufficient flood problems exist on Crab Tree Swamp in the City of Conway, Horry County, South Carolina to warrant further federal investigation. It is further concluded that a feasible solution can be developed to alleviate flood damages and that the scope of the solution is within the purview and cost limitation of Section 208 of the 1954 Flood Control Act, as amended. It is further concluded that the scope of the problem exceeds design capacity of the previous flood control improvements which have essentially exceeded their life expectancy. The current improvements have been maintained in an adequate manner to provide design protection. The major cause of the existing problem is a result of changes in the use of land resources within the basin.
