occurs on a small percentage of the watershed. Methods of flood frequency analysis usually consists of two steps. The first step is the analysis of annual peaks at gaging stations (the highest peak discharge occurring each year) to determine the magnitude and frequency of floods at individual gaging stations. Site photographs have also been reviewed to help establish an understanding of the source area. A selection of these photos are included below. Chainage Chainage (cropped source area) There are several mines in the catchment areas, Peak Hill (Gold) (currently closed Oct ), Tomingley (Gold) (open), North Parkes (Copper).

within the channel itself. Channel storage is only a small factor in a big flood. Floodplain storage is dominant if it is available under natural conditions. Thus the river and its overflow area constitute a reservoir provided by nature. Reservoir action ameliorates the flood peak. How much amelioration occurs and its value have not been determined. Along major rivers with very large drainage basins, the timing and elevations of flood peaks can be predicted far in advance and with considerable accuracy. In very small basins, flooding may be more difficult to predict to provide useful warning time. Generally, the smaller the drainage basin, the more difficult it is to forecast the flood.

Local governments adopt FEMA flood maps as the basis for local building codes to help reduce the impact of floods on buildings in high hazard flood areas. The process of analyzing flood hazards requires coordination with local governments, collection of extensive data about the area to be mapped, and complex engineering analysis.

Engineering (Project ENCA) is an effort by the DPWH through the PMO-Flood Control and Sabo Engineering Center to provide references in planning of flood control structures. Responsive approaches in planning of flood control structures are envisioned as this manual.

local flooding problems are too small to map. For any such community in the Regular Program, all areas within that community are treated as Zone C or X.

Unmapped Areas in Communities with Maps The flood hazards for some areas within mapped communities remain undetermined and are unmapped.

These unmapped areas are to be treated as Zone D. By the late s flood inundation models began to evolve which were computerized in the s and 80s to calculate inundation areas for the probable maximum flood, as well as year (1 chance in of occurrence) and year (1 chance of of occurrence) frequency floods, commonly used on government-sponsored flood maps.

The Flood Studies Report provided a choice of means (Fig. ) of estimating the flood hydrograph of any return period, or the estimated maximum flood, from an estimate of the storm depth and its time profile and its conversion to river flow.

It also provided a means of estimating the flood peak of any return period by statistical. Mountainous terrain and intense convective rainfall are important elements of the geography and hydrometeorology of extreme upper tail ratio flood peaks. The distribution of upper tail ratio values for USGS stream gaging stations does not depend on basin area, a result which is consistent with scaling results based on extreme value theory.

For assessing the effect of the flood mitigation measures (CDS and LIDs), seven hydrological-hydraulic indices were selected based on previous studies (Mei et al., ) and on engineering judgment. These indices were: percent change in flood peak (FP) at the sewer outlet, percent change in the surface runoff (SR), percent change in the total.The HRB has constructed five flood storage areas (total area is km 2, and flood storage capacity is billion m 2) and totally 21 flood bypasses.

These flood diversion and storage areas constitute as part of the flood control engineering system and played important roles .A special type of map using engineering studies (referred to as Flood Insurance Studies) to designate the flood risk for a particular area (usually a county). The maps are divided up into detailed areas known as Panels.

They have legends and indexes that are similar to more traditional maps.
