Hydrologic Design Basis For The Ross Valley Capital Improvement Plan Study

Read this technical memorandum by Stetson Engineers, Inc. describing the hydrologic design basis (the “1% annual chance flood”) for the Ross Valley Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Included is a discussion on the effectiveness of flood diversion & storage basins for longer duration rain events and larger flood flow events.
