Abstract : The flood control plan for the Bassett Creek watershed involves a combination of nonstructural and structural measures. Nonstructural measures include flood proofing residences and evacuation of one residence in the upper watershed, and continuance of local flood plain ordinances modified to reflect proposed conditions. Two principal structural measures are: a new conduit to replace the existing one outletting Bassett Creek to the Mississippi River, and the other, a series of small control structures in the upper watershed.
