Abstract : This study evaluated the flood history and hydrology of the Farm River watershed as well as the potential reduction in expected annual damages resulting from the implementation of a flood warning system and a corresponding response plan. The analysis included: a survey of all existing structures in the study area; an economic analysis of existing flood damages; an estimate of the damage reduction associated with the implementation of a flood warning system; and the development of necessary hydrologic information.
