The height of each wall varied depending on the depth of flood- ing that occurs at each individual building. For instance, at the Foodland Mall, the wag would have to average about 6.5 feet high to provide a 500-year level of pro- tection. Average annual benefits: $163.000; average annual cost: $636,300; B/C ratio: .26 to 1.0. Long Channel Work: This alternative consists of approxi- mately 27,830 feet (5.27 miles) of channel work. The channel work would begin at the Foodland Mall and extend downstream, foUow- ing the mouth of Leading Creek. The channel work would enlarge the present channel of the Little Kanawha River to 80 feet wide at the bottom and have 2:1 side slopes. The depth of the channel would not he increased, except for areas where gravel bars are re- moved. Average annual benefits: $653,500; average annual cost: $2,465,300; B/C ratio: .27 to 1.0. LongClearingand Snagging: This alternative consists of clear- ing and snagging the same reach of the Little Kanawha River (27,830) that was evaluated for channel work. Clearing and snag- ging consists primarily of remov- ing sediment, gravel bars and other obstructions from the channel bot- tom and removing heavy vegeta- tion that may restrict flood flows from the channel banks. This al- ternative would result in less envi- ronmental losses than the charnel work; however, it would not pro- vide as much protection. Average annual benefits: $398,000; aver- age annual cost: $1,056,500; B/C ratio: .38 to 1.0. [Members of the Gilmer County Watershed Asso- ciation chose this alternative as having the most realistic cost in relation the the benefits to be de- rived.] Short Clearing and Snagging: This alternariveconsists of clear- ing and snagging a relatively short reach of the Little Kanawha River in the town of Glenville. It would start adjacent to Conrad's Motel and extend downstream to the sewage treatment plant, a distance of 3,350 feet. This work would result in only minimal flood re- duction in Glenville (about six percent) because of the backwater effect from Leading Creek. Aver- age annual benefits: $73,700; av- erage annual cost: $377,600; B/C ratio: .20 to 1.0. Nonstructural Measures: Nonstructural measures were evaluated to determine their po- tential to provide flood protection in GlenviUe. Non structural men- sums provide flood protection by modifying flood prone structures instead of modifying the depth of flooding. This can be accom- plished by acquiring properties and moving them from the flood prone area; raising properties above po- tential flood elevations; or floodproofing properties by seal- ing openings or porous walls to prevent the entrance of floodwa- ters. Average annual benefits: $163,000; average annual cost: $121,000; B/C ratio: .24 to 1.0. No Project Alternative:The no project alternative will allow con- ditions to remain unaltered by project work. The Bumsville Dam and the Saltlick Creek Watershed project will continue to provide partial flood protection to the resi- dential and commercial areas of Glcnville. The National Weather Service will continue to provide warnings of impending floods.

The meeting was called to order by the president, Dessie Wolfe, who also led the group in the Pledge to the Flag and the Club expenditures of any federal funds, nor would it provide flood pro- tection tlltough project type action. Existing flood damages of $382,300 annually would continue to occurin the watershed; however, this amount ofdarnage is expected to decrease as properties are re- moved from the flood plain through attrition. It is expected that new development will be ac- complished in a flood-free manner. Consultation and Public Participation This report was prepared as a part of the Little Kanawha River Basin Study. The study members were the West Virginia State Soil Conservation Committee, the Soil Conservation Service and the For- est Service.
