Abstract: The development of a hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) model and analysis of flood management opportunities was completed for the Lake Martin Basin in Bay County, FL (5.6 sq-mi. drainage area) under Section 206 of the Flood Control Act of 1960, as amended (33 U.S. Code § 709a). The Floodplain Management Services (FPMS) program addresses the need of people who live and work in floodplains to know about flood hazards, and the actions they can take to reduce property damage and prevent the loss of life caused by flooding. The FPMS program provides a full range of technical services and planning guidance that is needed to support effective floodplain management. Services completed under this authority address any or all portions of the flood risk management life cycle (prepare, respond, recover, and mitigate) and may address floods and flood hazards in riverine and coastal areas. The study area includes four principal tributaries and a 178-acre reservoir. The primary non-federal partners for this technical service included the two municipalities within the drainage area, Springfield, FL and Parker, FL. A hydraulic and hydrologic modeling effort was completed to represent existing and future basin conditions through analysis of a suite of frequency flood profiles. Several opportunities to address flood risk were also analyzed. Flooding was analyzed with respect to both rainfall and storm surge risk drivers. Analyzed risk management opportunities included reservoir outlet works improvements, culvert/bridge modifications, pump system improvements, increases to reservoir storage capacity, upland detention, pluvial drainage improvements, and a levee. Additionally, roadway erosion and evacuation risk were assessed along with measures to improve resiliency at applicable sites. Critical findings and potential opportunities for consideration of the study municipalities are provided in this report.
