From the Abstract: "The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, led hydrologic and hydraulic analyses within the Clear Fork Mohican River Basin in and near Bellville, Ohio. The analyses included the development of digital flood-inundation maps for an approximately 2.5-mile reach of the Clear Fork Mohican River and the development of a precipitation-runoff model for a portion of the Clear Fork Mohican River Basin. Data collection for the study involved the installation and operation of 2 streamgages (Clear Fork Mohican River at Bellville, Ohio, and Cedar Fork above Bellville, Ohio); 1 lake-level gage (Clear Fork Reservoir near Lexington, Ohio); 2 precipitation gages (Clear Fork Reservoir near Lexington, Ohio, and Rain Gage at Cedar Fork above Bellville, Ohio); and 12 submersible pressure transducers on Clear Fork Mohican River and 4 of its tributaries. Data collection also included field surveys of hydraulic structures and channel cross sections."
