Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Natural Resources Department of the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa Tribe, conducted a study of the extent of flooding near the community of Odanah, Wisconsin, caused by the July 11, 2016 storm event in northern Wisconsin and the Bad River Reservation. Immediately after the flooding, the USGS and the Bad River Natural Resources Department documented 108 high-water marks (HWM) in the Odanah area. The HWMs were used to create flood-inundation maps to support the response and recovery operations. Three sets of flood-inundation polygon boundaries, flood-inundation extents, flood depths, and high-water marks were compiled for the Bad River, Beartrap Creek, and Denomie [...]

Purpose

Maps of flood-inundation polygon boundaries, flood-inundation extents, flood depths, and high water maps were created in a geographic information system to support the development of flood inundation maps for the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa Tribe's response and recovery operations following the July 2016 flood event. Flood-inundation maps were created for the Bad River, Beartrap Creek, and Denomie Creek near the community of Odanah, Wisconsin.
