Abstract : This report presents part of the results of the hydrologic engineering analysis of interior flood damage reduction measures for the City of Napa, CA conducted by the Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) for the Sacramento District Corps of Engineers. The objective of the hydrologic engineering analysis was to determine: (1) the minimum outlet facility associated with the proposed line-of-protection; (2) the stage-frequency relationships for the without-project conditions; and (3) the stage-frequency relationships for a range of gravity outlet and pumping station sizes and configurations for the interior areas. This report presents the results of applying the HEC-IFH program for evaluation of one of the several interior areas involved in the overall investigation. The report includes a description of (1) the study area, (2) the Napa River proposed flood damage reduction project, (3) interior area data and information, (4) without-project conditions analysis for minimum facility analysis (5) minimum facility analysis, and (6) stage-frequency for interior flood damage reduction plans.
