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.

Extended rating:
This location does not have a measured rating curve. The relationship between stage and flow at this location is estimated based on a calibrated steady-state hydraulic model.
