Flood-Inundation Maps for a 23-Mile Reach of the Medina River at Bandera, Texas, 2018   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Abstract: "In 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Bandera County River Authority and Groundwater District and the Texas Water Development Board, studied floods through the period of record to create a library of flood-inundation maps for the Medina River at Bandera, Texas. Digital flood-inundation maps for a 23-mile reach of the Medina River at and near Bandera, from the confluence with Winans Creek to English Crossing Road, were developed. The flood-inundation maps depict estimates of the areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to a range of different gage heights (gage height is commonly referred to as 'stage,' or the water-surface elevation at a streamflow-gaging station) at USGS streamflow-gaging station 08178880 Medina River at Bandera, Tex. (hereinafter referred to as the 'Bandera station')."
