Abstract : The plan of improvement for the Buck Creek watershed consists of enlargement and realignment of the existing channels on Buck Creek and its principal tributaries which will provide varying degrees of protection within the watershed. The enlarged channels will contain the 5-year frequency storm at the mouth of Buck Creek with the degree of protection gradually diminishing going upstream to the point that the 3-year frequency storm will be contained in the upper watershed. The total length of channel improvements on Buck Creek and its tributaries is 18.94 miles with 11.36 miles on Buck Creek, 2.89 miles on Deep Branch, 2.98 miles on Camp Swamp, and 1.71 miles on Hawkins Branch. Channel bottom widths vary from 10 feet to 35 feet with 1 to 1 side slopes.
