BIBLIOGRAPHY OF REPORTS BY U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY AUTHORS ABOUT THE WATER RESOURCES OF WYOMING

 

USGS FLOOD-PRONE AREA MAPS

The 89th United States Congress (1966) recommended preparation of flood-prone area maps to quickly identify areas of probable flood hazard. USGS was assigned primary responsibility for delineating on topographic quadrangles (scale 1:24,000) approximate areas that would be inundated by a 100-year flood. The Federal Insurance Administration, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, used the USGS maps to authorize flood insurance in communities waiting for detailed flood-hazard surveys. During 1972-77, and 1981-82, USGS personnel delineated flood-prone areas for Wyoming streams on parts of 234 quadrangles. The general method and the equation used to estimate the depths of 100-year floods in Wyoming streams are described in a report by Burkham (1978) in this bibliography. The maps are reproduced in-house for free distribution upon request; however, users of these maps are cautioned that the maps are to be used only for general guidance about possible flood hazards

The mapped quadrangles for Wyoming are listed below in downstream order by major geographic area.

Official flood-insurance maps are available from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (phone 1-800-358-9616; on the Web at http://www.fema.gov/maps.shtm).
