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.

20 This is very close to the 1959 flood of record. Dozens of homes in the Denman Park neighborhood behind the levee are flooded, with much of the area between Harrison Street and the South Fork flooded by several feet of water. Most of the Little Texas neighborhood is also flooded south of the railroad tracks. Much of Summit Street Road is also flooded.
19 Dozens of homes in the Denman Park neighborhood behind the levee are flooded, with much of the area between Harrison Street and the South Fork flooded by several feet of water. Most of the Little Texas neighborhood is also flooded south of the railroad tracks. Much of Summit Street Road is also flooded.
18.5 Dozens of homes in the Denman Park neighborhood behind the levee are flooded, with much of the area from Harrison Street to National Drive flooded by several feet of water. Most of the Little Texas neighborhood is also flooded south of the C and O Railroad tracks.
18 Water begins to flow behind the levee protecting neighborhoods near Denman Park near the south fork of the river. Many homes are flooded between Fleek Avenue and National Drive by water several feet in depth. Flooding worsens in the Little Texas neighborhood between the C and O Railroad and the river.
16 Flooding of nearly half of Canterbury Trails Mobile Home Park occurs, with portions of Licking View Drive flooded. Backwater flooding into Raccoon Creek is possible, which may flood areas of Raccoon Drive. Properties near Nathaniel Avenue and Spring Streets flood, with homes flooding in the Little Texas area between Ohio Street and the river. The ball diamonds near Little Texas also flood, as well as areas of Summit Street Road.
15 Water is nearly one foot deep on Sleepy Hollow Road, portions of Nathaniel Avenue and Southeast Summit Road. Additionally, water encroaches areas near Caterbury Trails Mobile Home community near Licking View Drive and Forry Street.
14 A few inches of water covers Nathaniel Avenue, Forry Street near the 200 block, the Babe Ruth ball diamonds. Some low-lying areas near Little Texas and Summit Road east of Newark incur minor flooding, as well as Sleepy Hollow Road.
