Abstract

Flood heights are computed for a range of recurrence intervals for a 12.6 mile reach of Brooker Creek, in west-central Florida, beginning at the mouth of Lake Tarpon. A U.S. Geological Survey step-backwater computer program, E431, was used in these analyses using (1) stream and valley cross-section geometry and roughness data, (2) recurrence interval flood-peak discharges, (3) recurrence interval starting elevations, and (4) gaging station stage-discharge relations. Flood heights may be plotted versus distance above stream mouth and connected to construct flood profiles. They also may be used to indicate areas of inundation on detailed topographic maps.
