Abstract

The "1997 Flood Tracking Chart for the Sheyenne River Basin" can be used by local citizens and emergency response personnel to record the latest river stage and predicted flood-crest information.  By comparing the current state (water-surface elevation above some datum) and predicted flood crest to the recorded peak stages of previous floods, emergency response personnel and residents can make informed decisions concerning the threat to life and property.  The flood tracking chart shows a map of the basin, the location of major real-time streamflow-gaging stations in the basin, and the historical recorded peak stages at selected stations.  Each graph represents a station and has a scale on which to record the most recently reported river stage from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).  The predicted flood-crest information from the National Weather Service (NWS) also can be recorded on each graph.
