Abstract : Studies of a 210-square mile area including the Cape Girardeau-Jackson, Missouri metropolitan areas are addressed in this report. The problem of flooding along Cape La Croix Creek and Walker Branch in the City of Cape Girardeau (drainage area of 21.4 square miles) is addressed by the Recommended Plan. Environmental, outdoor recreation, and social well-being concerns have also been addressed. Flood control improvements for the remainder of the study area, including the city of Jackson and the rural area along the Little River Diversion Channel, are not economically justified at this time.
