Abstract:The results of the case study indicate that total flood costs may be reduced by implementing flood easements. Thus, the null hypothesis is rejected. Model results are robust to changes in the estimated dollar damages, yet extremely sensitive to changes in the hydrological estimates. The modeling approach may be applied to other large river floodplains.
