ABSTRACT

Flood-Inundation Maps for Cayuga Inlet, Sixmile Creek, Cascadilla Creek, and Fall Creek at Ithaca, New York   [open pdf - 7MB]

"Digital flood-inundation maps for a 2.9-square-mile area of Ithaca, New York, were created in 2015-18 by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the City of Ithaca, New York, and the New York State Department of State. The flood-inundation maps depict estimates of the maximum areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to selected flood frequencies for Cayuga Inlet, Sixmile Creek, Cascadilla Creek, and Fall Creek and selected water-surface elevations of Cayuga Lake. [...] Flood-inundation maps and geographic information system flood-extent polygons and depth grids are available in the data release associated with this report. These maps can provide emergency management personnel and residents with information that is critical for flood-management planning, flood-response activities, and postflood recovery efforts."
