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.
