Abstract : Flooding is caused by the overflow of the main stem of Kinley Creek and its tributary K-2 which flows to the southeast of the town of Irmo and to the west northwest of the City of Columbia. The flood problems discussed in this report are based on information obtained from local officials as to specific areas of concern, topographic mapping with five-foot contour intervals, and a field reconnaissance by the Corp's study team. Local officials report that flooding has occurred, however, details of the damages suffered or information on frequencies were not furnished. The objectives of this phase of the investigation are to determine the feasibility of further Federal involvement in addressing the flooding problems and to develop a detailed study plan. Should further study be needed, the objectives would be to formulate alternative measures to alleviate flood damage and to select the best course of action to alleviate these problems.
