This investigation was undertaken as a part of the cooperative program with the Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research, the City of Des Moines, and the U.S. Geological Survey.  The purpose of this report is twofold:

1.  To present water-surface profiles and rating curves for existing channel conditions in the 4-mile reach of Raccoon River upstream from the mouth, and

2. To show the effect upon water-surface profiles of raising the Fleur Drive roadway to eliminate road overflow.
