Abstract: The Kansas City Metropolitan Region experienced localized heavy rainfall beginning on 12 September 1977 and by 13 September experienced flooding of catastrophic proportions. Total damage in the region was estimated at about $100 million and 25 lives were lost. Heaviest hit was the Brush Creek basin, especially that part which lies in Kansas City, Missouri. The Kansas City District, Corps of Engineers, was asked to study the flooding problem in the basin to see if solutions, either Federal or non-Federal, were possible that would lessen future flood damage and loss of life. This report documents the study which was begun shortly after the 1977 flood.
