USGS Hydraulic Study

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) conducted a hydraulic study of the Chippewa Flood Control Project. The study will enable the Subdistrict to model modifications to the structures and 33 miles of channels and aid in the decisions about repairs and improvements based on current data and conditions.
