Abstract

This report documents flood data for Killbuck Creek, Apple Creek, and Little Apple Creek at Wooster, Ohio, to show the high-water elevations and corresponding discharges produced by the July 5, 1969 flood. This flood resulted from a violent storm with officially recorded rainfall in excess of 10 inches and unofficial catches of over l4 inches in the vicinity of Wooster during the 18-hour storm period. A more detailed analysis of data for Killbuck Creek was made in order to define an estimated profile of the July 5 flood for an assumed condition with no obstructions present in the channel or on the flood plain. The 50-year frequency flood profiles on Killbuck Creek were also developed for existing conditions and for the assumed condition of no obstructions.
