SIMPLE METHODS TO EVALUATE RELATIVE EFFECTS OF LONGITUDINAL ENCROACHMENTS

To aid highway planners and others who must site structures and fills in natural floodplains, simplified graphical solutions were developed that provide short-cut methods for easy assessment of encroachment impacts. Changes in stage (water-surface elevation) and hydrograph peak discharge due to encroachments were determined. The discussion is limited to encroachments that parallel the channel. (Author)
