Abstract : In July, 1993 there were two periods of heavy rain over the watershed of the Maple, Rush, Lower Rush and Sheyenne Rivers. The first event on July 15 and 16th, caused significant runoff, and caused the Horace and West Fargo Levee and Diversion projects to perform for the second time since their completion. This report summarizes the findings of a detailed hydrologic and hydraulic analysis of the 1993 summer flood, and the effects of Horace and West Fargo Levee and Diversion projects on the area downstream of the projects. Flood peak discharges for summer 1993 and summer 1975 are given. (MM)
