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 This level is similar to the FEMA 1 percent flood. Dozens of homes and businesses between West Church Street and Raccoon Creek are flooded, with flooding also affecting several blocks between West Church and Route 16. Additionally, flooding affects property along the east side of North 21st Street, with much of the YMCA campus and buildings flooded. Flooding of homes and businesses also occurs near the creek between Main and Wilson Streets.
20 Locations along South 6th Street near the creek are flooded between the railroad tracks and Main Street. Flooding along Western Avenue may be several feet deep along property closest to the creek. Flooding also begins behind homes along Wilson Street. Flooding worsens along Raccoon Drive, as well as White Field and the YMCA complex.
19 Flooding affects homes and businesses along Wilson and Jefferson Streets, as well as along Western Avenue. Flooding also affects Raccoon Drive. White Field is flooded, as well as areas of the YMCA complex. Flooding near the creek is confined to properties east of North 21st Street.
18 Water encroaches on properties over several blocks of an area between Jefferson and Wilson Streets near the creek, as well as areas between West Church and North 21st Streets near the YMCA. Homes in the area incur flooding with water roughly one foot deep.
17 Further inundation occurs in areas near the White Field Stadium and Flory Park. In addition, lowland flooding of some properties occurs between North 21st Street and Raccoon Creek and near North 9th Street and Raccoon Creek.
16 Flood waters approach White Field. In addition, flooding occurs in Flory Park.
