Description:
Abstract:
This digital data set represents hydrologic information on the extent of flooding along a 19-mile reach of the Susquehanna River, from the vicinity of Harding to Nanticoke in the Wyoming Valley of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. The principal community within this reach is Wilkes-Barre.  The digital data set provides a technical foundation for plans that invlove the use of flood-plain lands at a scale of 1:24000.


The areal extent of the flooding is mapped for the largest known flood, which occured June 24, 1972, as a result of heavy rains that accompanied Tropical Storm Agnes.
Purpose:
A digital representation of the Hydrological Investigations Atlas HA-523.
