Background and Problem Prattsville has experienced severe flooding along the Schoharie Creek, most notably during August 2011 following Hurricane Irene, which severely damaged or destroyed large areas of the town, and caused several million dollars in damages (Figure 1). Before and during a flood, forewarning and emergency response are critical. The rescue efforts of emergency responders are often hampered by lack of an understanding of where flooding is occurring at any given moment, but also where flooding is likely to occur in the near future. Emergency responders would benefit from a library of flood-inundation maps that are referenced to the stages recorded at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) streamgage in...

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 2.4-mile reach of the Schoharie Creek in North Blenheim, New York, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the New York Power Authority. The flood-inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science web site at https://fim.wim.usgs.gov/fim/, depict estimates of the areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to selected water levels (stages) at the USGS streamgage on the Schoharie Creek near North Blenheim, NY (station number 01350212). Flood profiles were computed for the stream reach by means of a two-dimensional implicit finite volume hydraulic model. The model was calibrated using the active (as of April,...

These model archive summaries document surrogate regression models developed to estimate suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) at three USGS streamgages in New York: Mohawk River above State Highway 30A at Fonda, USGS site number 01349527; Schoharie Creek at Burtonsville, USGS site number 01351500; and Mohawk River at Cohoes, USGS site number 01357500. Ordinary least squares regression equations were developed between suspended-sediment concentration and turbidity using the U.S. Geological Survey Surrogate Analysis and Index Developer (SAID) Tool (Domanski and others, 2015) and methods described in Rasmussen and others (2009). Model summaries were developed following guidance in USGS Office of Surface Water...

This child item model archive summary documents a surrogate regression model to estimate suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) at the Schoharie Creek at Burtonsville, New York (U.S. Geological Survey station number 01351500). The methods used follow USGS guidance in relevant Office of Surface Water/Office of Water Quality Technical Memoranda and USGS Techniques and Methods, book 3, chap. 4 (Rasmussen and others, 2009). Sixty-one concurrent measurements of SSC and turbidity, collected from October 1, 2015, through May 2, 2020, were used in the model calibration dataset. Samples were collected across 75 percent of the range in observed discharge and 87 percent of the range in observed turbidity during the model calibration...
