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 depths displayed within the channel are not representative of the true channel depth. The depths displayed within the floodplain are representative of true depth, and the depths are accurate within a range of +/ - 1 ft.
