Low Water Records
Currently none available.

Graphical representation of flood inundation for NWS flood categories are based on steady state hydraulic modeling of water surface elevations for incremented discharges. Map shows approximate inundation areas for given water surface elevations and should not be used for navigation or permitting or other legal purposes, but strictly as a planning reference tool.

Site-specific information:
The scientific publication for these maps is available from the USGS at: http://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2012/5137/.

The Licking County flood warning system includes the funding partners: Village of Granville, Granville Township, Denison University, City of Newark, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, Ohio Department of Transportation, Licking County Ohio and the USGS Ohio Water Science Center.

Extended rating:
The Rating Curve Extension is calculated by using either a linear, logarithmic, or hydraulic technique to extend the rating curve above the currently established relationship between stage and flow.

22 Significant flooding occurs along Hollander Street to the north of Weaver Boulevard, as well as onto Riverview Drive near the river. Widespread flooding of Owens Corning property near East Shields Street occurs, with water several feet deep in some areas of the property. Significant flooding of Everett Park occurs, with water several feet deep, and some flooding of homes along Pleasant, Lincoln, North, Valley and East Church Streets. This river stage is close to the FEMA 1 percent flood.
21 Significant flooding occurs along Hollander Street on and north of Weaver Boulevard. Widespread flooding of the Owens Corning property near East Shields Street occurs, with water several feet deep in some areas of the property. Significant flooding of Everett Park occurs, with water several feet deep, and some flooding of homes along Pleasant, Lincoln, North, Valley and East Church Streets.
20 Flooding worsens in the Owens Corning Facility. Flooding continues in Everett and Wildcat Parks, and water is as much as one to two feet deep near homes along Pleasant Street, Valley Street and North Avenue close to the North Fork.
19 Flooding of homes and property occurs along North Avenue and sections of Pleasant and Valley Streets, and Riverside Drive and Case Avenue. Flooding is more widespread in the Owens Corning facility due to water from both the North Fork and backwater into Log Pond Run. Significant flooding of Everett and Wildcat Parks occurs.
18 Some flooding of the Owens Corning facility occurs with flooding from both the Nork Fork and backwater flooding into the property from Log Pond Run. Flooding occurs of some yards and outbuildings along Pleasant Street and North Avenue, as well as flooding of Wildcat and Everett Parks.
17 Minor flooding continues along the North Fork with backwater flooding onto Log Pond Run beginning to inundate some driveways on the Owens Corning property. Flooding also approaches homes near Pleasant Street and North Avenue, with flood water several feet deep in Wildcat Park.
16 Minor flooding of lowland areas near the North Fork continues with backwater flooding into some low spots of the Owens Corning property. Flooding continues at Wildcat Park.
15 Minor flooding in lowland areas along the North Fork occurs with some flooding of Wildcat Park.
