A review of records and historical research of floods for the Tombigbee River near Cochrane, Alabama, show that the flood of 1892 was the highest since 1818. In 1962 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers estimated a peak discharge of 235,000 cu ft/sec for this flood. This estimated discharge is more than 40% > the next highest flood peak; that of 1973. Limit curves developed for the tailwater of Aliceville Lock and Dam, based on 61 computed discharge and 24 discharge measurements, show the range in stage for a given discharge at this site. Similarly, limit curves developed for Gainesville Lock and Dam pool were developed based on 49 computed discharges and 10 mean daily discharges. Data from hydrographic surveys that were made for more [...]
