11. CHATTANOOGA, TENN., AND ROSSVILLE, GA. Location. This project is located at Chattanooga, Tenn., and the adjoining suburb of Rossville, Ga., on both banks of the Tennessee River, about 464 miles above the mouth and 188 miles below the source of the river.

Existing project.—The plan of improvement provides for the construction of a series of earth levees and concrete flood walls consisting, by sections, of the following features: (1) Tennessee River, right bank section, a levee 9,000 feet in length beginning about 200 feet upstream from the north approach of the Walnut Street Bridge, extending downstream to the Market Street Bridge, and then running southwesterly to high ground at Stringers Ridge; (2) Citico Creek section, a levee 17,300 feet in length beginning 3,000 feet northeast of Boyce Station, extending northwest by short sections of levee between high points, deflecting and running in a general southerly direction to high ground north of the Citico yards of the Southern Railway, and relocation of part of Citico Creek by a new channel 2,500 feet in length; (3) Tennessee River, left bank, central section, a flood wall 2,400 feet in length beginning at the rock bluff just upstream from the Market Street Bridge and extending downstream to high ground at Second and Pine Streets; (4) Tennessee River, left bank, south section, about 9,600 feet of levee and 4,900 feet of flood wall, the levee beginning at Cameron Hill and extending westerly to the top of the river bank where it turns and runs downstream to the head of Ross Towhead, at which point the works change to a concrete flood wall, continuing southerly along the river bank to the mouth of the Chattanooga Creek; (5) Chattanooga Creek section, about 30,000 feet of levees and a new channel for Chattanooga Creek with a length of about 16,000 feet, the new channel following a line extending from near the mouth of the creek to Royal Avenue at the TennesseeGeorgia State line, the channel generally being parallel on both sides by levees, the left levee tying into high ground near the upper and lower ends of the channel and the levee along the right bank tying into the Rossville levee at the Tennessee-Georgia State line and into the railway yards near the mouth of the creek; (6) Rossville section, actually a continuation of the Chattanooga Creek section, consisting of a levee about 7,000 feet long, extending from high ground south of Rossville to the right bank levee of the Chattanooga Creek section at the Tennessee-Georgia State line. The proposed works will afford protection with a 5-foot freeboard to the cities of Chattanooga and Rossville from floods equivalent

to the maximum flood of record, which reached a gage height of 57.9 feet. Necessary sewer and drainage structures, pumping plants, floodgates, ramps, and railroad and street modifications are also included in the project.

The project was authorized by the Flood Control Act approved August 18, 1941 (H. Doc. 479, 76th Cong., 2d sess.).

The estimated cost of new work, made in 1939, is $13,500,000 for construction and $3,263,000 for lands and damages.

Local cooperation. See page 5 for requirements. Local interests have given informal assurances that the requirements of local cooperation will be complied with.

Operations and results during fiscal year.-Location surveys, geologic investigations, hydraulic studies, foundation explorations, and design layouts were under way in connection with preparation of plans.

The costs, all for new work, were $60,941.07. The expenditures were $65,465.83.

Condition at end of fiscal year.–Location surveys, geologic investigations, hydrologic studies, and design work were under way.

Total costs to June 30, 1945, all for new work, were $161,098.69. The total expenditures were $160,558.39.

Proposed operations. The balance unexpended on June 30, 1945, amounting to $196,441.61, will be applied to accounts payable June 30, 1945, in the amount of $540.30, and to continuation of investigations, surveys, design, and preparation of contract plans and specifications.

Additional funds in the amount of $500,000 can be profitably expended on this project during the fiscal years 1946 and 1947 ($200,000 of this total in 1946), for the continuation of the preparation of plans and initiation of construction.

12. PRELIMINARY EXAMINATIONS, SURVEYS, AND

CONTINGENCIES FOR FLOOD CONTROL The costs during the fiscal year were $19,910.56. The expenditures were $20,712.94.

The balance unexpended on June 30, 1945, plus accounts receivable and an allotment of $10,000 made in July 1945, and an anticipated allotment of $38,019.71, totaling $72,774.27, will be applied in payment of accounts payable and expenses to be incurred under this heading

The additional sum of $21,000 can be profitably expended during fiscal year 1947.
