Abstract : Flooding is caused by the overflow of Devils Ditch which is located south of the City of Columbia. The flood problems discussed in this report are based on information obtained from local officials as to specific areas in which they are experiencing problems, topographic mapping with five-foot contour intervals, and a field reconnaissance by the Corps' study team. Local officials report that flooding is experienced at least once annually. Based upon information presented in this report, it is recommended that further study of flood problems in Devils Ditch be authorized. Estimated study cost for completion of an expanded reconnaissance report is $120,000.
