MetadataShow full item record
The Cobb County Stormwater Management Division hired AMEC to apply our Automated Floodplain Generator (AFG) tool to create floodplains and elevations for compliance with the “Model Floodplain Management / Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance”. This ordinance was created by the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District (MNGWPD) to protect public safety, minimize both public and private losses due to potential flooding from stormwater runoff, and protect the floodplain functions that manage water quantity and quality. A pilot area was selected for study and includes streams within the Olley Creek, Rottenwood Creek and Nickajack Creek Watersheds (referred to as Priority Area Three by Cobb County).
