ABSTRACT

Flood-Inundation Maps of the Meramec River from Eureka to Arnold, Missouri, 2018   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "Libraries of digital flood-inundation maps that spanned a combined 37.2-mile reach of the Meramec River that extended upstream from Eureka, Missouri, to downstream near the confluence of the Meramec and Mississippi Rivers were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District, Missouri Department of Transportation, Missouri American Water, Federal Emergency Management Agency Region 7, and the cities of Pacific, Eureka, Wildwood, and Arnold. [...] The availability of these maps, along with internet information regarding current stage from the USGS [U.S. Geological Survey] streamgages and forecasted high-flow stages from the NWS [National Weather Service], will provide emergency management personnel and residents with information that is critical for flood response activities such as evacuations and road closures and for postflood recovery efforts."
