Badger Flood 2003 Situation Report

Guidelines Cover

The Town of Badger has a long history of flooding dating back to 1916. However, the February 15 event was the most severe in terms of depth of inundation and damages to the town. The mechanism was also different, particularly with respect to the rate of rise of the water level.

This report provides a description of the event, outlines the data that is available to carry out further investigations, describes the response of the Water Resources Management Division (WRMD) and other agencies to the flood event and makes conclusions and recommendations.
