From the Introduction: "Flooding and flood damage in New York during the calendar year 1972 are summarized in this report. The report was prepared at the request of the New York State Department of Transportation under provisions of an agreement between the department and the U.S. Geological Survey for a cooperative, statewide program to investigate the water resources of the State. In addition to the material included in the report, 39 flood maps were prepared from high water marks observed in the field by Geological Survey personnel. Also two hydrologic atlases were published by the flood at Corning. Complete references for the flood maps and the atlases are given under 'References.'"
