      Graphical representation of flood inundation for NWS flood categories are based on steady state hydraulic modeling of water surface elevations for incremented discharges. Map shows approximate inundation areas for given water surface elevations and should not be used for navigation or permitting or other legal purposes, but strictly as a planning reference tool.

      Extended rating:
      Rating Curve Extension - The Rating Curve Extension is calculated by using either a linear, logarithmic, or hydraulic technique to extend the rating curve above the currently established relationship between stage and flow.

      32 At levels above 32 feet major flooding begins as portions of Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive are under 1 to 2 feet of water and homes upstream of the gage begin flooding.
      29.5 At levels above 29.5 feet moderate lowland flooding begins Memorial Drive between Sandman Streeet and Waugh Drive becomes inundated.
      28.7 At levels above 28.7 feet Allen Parkway east of Montrose Boulevard and Memorial Drive east of Waugh Drive flood.
      28 At levels above 28 feet minor lowland flooding begins as water spills out of main channel and floods the lowest levels of apartments near the gage.
