Abstract : This reconnaissance scope study was conducted under the special continuing authority contained in Section 205 of the 1948 Flood Control Act, as amended. It investigated alternative measures to eliminate recurring ice jam flood damages to the Village of Baltic in Sprague, Connecticut. We have concluded that a plan utilizing ice retention structures has sufficient economic justification to continue into a feasibility study. However, the State of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and town of Sprague have agreed to undertake the design and construction of the ice jam control structure on the Shetucket River without further Corps assistance. Therefore, Corps of Engineers involvement was terminated.
