    2. Grade control is an important part of stable flood-control channel design (McCarley et al. ). Present design guidance regarding grade con-trol structures is from diverse sources. Specific topics require both exten-sive literature and experimental study prior to . Section 6: Design Flood and Check Flood Standards. TxDOT’s approach to selecting the design standard for a drainage facility is to use a reference table that specifies a range of design AEPs for different types of facilities. Table provides the design frequencies for TxDOT projects.

Publicity purposes 2. Assessment of costs among beneficiaries 3. With the passage of the Flood Control Act of (33 USC ), the need for a more effective flood warning and control system was addressed. The Act authorized an allotment of funds from appropriations for flood control for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of an information service on precipitation, flood forecasts, and flood.

A compilation and presentation of flood risk data for specific watercourses, lakes, and coastal flood hazard areas within a community. When a flood study is completed for the NFIP, the information and maps are assembled into an FIS.

The FIS report contains detailed flood elevation data in flood profiles and data tables. The Flood Control Act of established the policy that the Federal Govern- ment should improve or participate in the improve- ment of navigable waters or their tributaries for flood control purposes if the benefits to whomsoever they may accrue are in excess of the estimated cost, and if the lives and social security of the people are other.
