18.5 This would roughly equal the FEMA 500 year or 0.2 percent flood event. Significant flooding of Plumtree and Edgecliff Drives in Mount Air occurs east of Route 315, with the Powell Waste Water Treatment Plant in southern Delaware County also flooded. Substantial flooding occurs along Rivers Edge Drive and Mount Air Place.
18 Widespread flooding occurs in sections of Worthington near the river, with homes flooded along Edgecliff and Plumtree Drives in Mount Air. Some flooding begins at the Powell Waste Water Treatment Plant.
17 A stage of this level is just above the FEMA 1 percent flood level. Homes become flooded along western parts of Rosslyn and Kanawha Avenues and Tucker Drive in Worthington. Homes are flooded along Edgecliff and Plumtree Drives close to the river in Mount Air. Much of Olentangy Park and the bike trail are flooded. Flooding extends onto the back of properties along Masefield Street. Water also approaches the Powell Waste Water Treatment Plant.
15 In addition to flooding near Mount Air near Edgecliff and Plumtree Drives close to the river, flooding worsens near Worthington near Olentangy Park and along the bike trail.
13 Flooding worsens in low areas along the Olentangy River in Mount Air, and lowland areas near the river in Worthington experience flooding. Flooding in and near Worthington is confined to Olentangy Park and along the bike trail.
10 Flood waters approach residences along the river in Mount Air, between Olentangy River Road and the river itself. Flooding does not occur in Worthington until stages near 13 feet.
9 Flooding spreads further into yards of homes near the river in Mount Air, between Olentangy River Road and the river.
8 Flooding of yards begins along the Olentangy River near Mount Air in northern Franklin County, only in low-lying areas between Olentangy River Road and the river.
