Transcript

  • 1. Spring Green 2008 Flooding and Flood Control Options Jon Lefers, PEMontgomery Associates: Resource Solutions, LLC WAFSCM 2010 Conference November 4, 2010
  • 2. Introduction• Why did the flood occur?• What happened?• Can something be done about future damages from flooding?
  • 3. Acknowledgments• Jewell Engineering• Town of Spring Green• Wisconsin Geologic and Natural History Survey• Fred Iausly
  • 4. Why did the flood occur?• Wetter than normal late summer/fall in 2007• Record winter snowfall• June 7-8 and June 12 storms• No outlet for flood waters
  • 5. Source: USGS, Professional Paper 1775
  • 6. Mid-May ThroughMid-June 2008 Precipitation
  • 7. June 7-8 and June 12 Events• Total of 10.1 inches fell over 5 days
  • 8. Current Runoff Pattern
  • 9. Wisconsin River Valley Topography Source: Sauk Co./F. Iausly/WGS
  • 10. What happened?• 4,400 acres flooded• Crops destroyed • Sanitary sewer failures• Homes and businesses • Culvert failures damaged or destroyed • Roads flooded• Families evacuated & • Health and safety displaced from homes problems
  • 11. Flooding Extents Source: F. Iausly
  • 12. Can something be done about future damages from flooding?FEMA Buyouts• 28 substantially damaged homes were acquired and demolished or removed from flood hazard areas at a total cost of $5.4 million.Flooding Reduction• Developed a rainfall-runoff-routing model• Evaluated several scenarios for performance – Key factors: Depth, area, and duration of flooding• Evaluated impacts and costs for various solutions
  • 13. Hydrologic Analysis• Runoff Volumes – SCS Curve Number Methodology • Soils runoff potential • Land use runoff potential – Antecedent moisture conditions accounted for
  • 14. Runoff Volumes (Acre-Feet) 100 year June 7-8 June 12 Storm Current Big Hollow 1,013 1,740 1,442 RunoffCentral Basin 560 546 725 Pattern East Basin 360 350 479 West Basin 1,182 1,153 1,516Total Volume 3,116 3,790 4,162
  • 15. Model Water Table MapGroundwater moves from high to low elevations Wisconsin River Source: WGNHS model
  • 16. Modeled Increase in Water Table (ft) when Recharge is Increased by 1 inch 1.5 ft 1.0 ft
  • 17. Sample Scenario

  • 19. Sample Scenario - Flooded Area June 13
  • 20. Sample Scenario - Flooded Area June 15
  • 21. Sample Scenario - Flooded Area June 17
  • 22. Other Flooded Areas Source: F. Iausly
  • 23. Permits, Coordination, & Design Standards• DNR• US Army Corps• Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Board• DOT (Highways and railroad)• Wisconsin & Southern RR• DATCP & NRCS• Town of Spring Green• Sauk County• Above and below ground utilities• Local landowners (irrigation and land impacts)
  • 24. Conclusions• Flooding in Spring Green was a combination of flash flooding and groundwater-driven extended flooding• Allowing for flooding of agricultural fields lasting a few days is critical to implementing a feasible drainage system.• Several drainage outlets would need to be constructed.• Multiple permitting and design challenges exist for constructing drainage outlets to the Wisconsin River
