Storm Event Summary
On July 15, 2000, between 5.2 and 7.6 inches of
rainfall fell within the watershed over a 10-hour period. This storm event was
approximately equivalent to a 10-year return period rainfall. Despite the
drought-like conditions that preceded the storm, the intense rainfall resulted
in several instances of localized flooding throughout the Stevenson Creek
Watershed. The City has received valuable input from several Stevenson Creek
residents concerning the flooding problems resulting from this storm.
After the waters receded, the City and Parsons ES
documented high water elevations at 23 locations throughout the watershed. This
information will be used in calibrating the hydrologic and hydraulic computer
model. Below are graphs of the rainfall and stream stage data collected on
July 15th at the Drew Street and Kings
Highway gaging sites.
