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 shopping center located west of Seth Child Road and south of Anderson Ave is subject to localized flooding conditions. Localized flooding may occur at elevations lower than 1066 ft at this location, and the localized flooding may be more severe than the conditions depicted by the flood inundation map.

Extended rating:
Rating Curve Extension - 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.

23 Flood waters flood the road going into the Highland Ridge Apartment complex and water nearing the actual buildings. In the Garden Way area downstream of Seth Childs Road, some apartment buildings are either taking on water, or completely surrounded by flood waters. In addition extensive road and parking lot flooding occurs in the Garden Way area.
22 Water just overtops the retaining wall adjacent to the parking lot north of the Highland Ridge Apartments. The Garden Way area downstream of Seth Childs Road, the road is flooded in a couple of spots on Garden Way.
17 The low spot in Anneberg Circle is flooded with water very close to the golf course clubhouse.
16 Flood waters begin to reach North 1200 Road, commonly known as Wildcat Creek Road, just upstream of the Scenic Drive bridge.
14 Flood waters reach Poliska Lane, just north of Fort Riley Boulevard.
