8. GILL TOWNSHIP LEVEE UNIT, WABASH RIVER, IND. Location.—The Gill Township levee unit is located in Sullivan County, Ind., on the east bank of the Wabash River, 152 to 162 miles above the mouth.

Existing project. The plan of improvement provides for raising and enlarging the existing earth levee extending from high ground on the right bank of the Busseron Creek, 2.2 miles east of the Wabash River, thence along that bank to the confluence of Busseron Creek and the Wabash River, thence upstream along the left bank of the Wabash River to the Illinois Central Railroad bridge at Riverton, a distance of 50,126 feet; and a riverside enlargement along the upstream side of the Illinois Central Railroad embankment from the bridge at Riverton to high ground at Merom station, a distance of 9,790 feet. Two pumping plants for the disposal of interior drainage, and appurtenant drainage structures are included in the plan of improvement.

The project will provide protection for approximately 12,000 acres of overflow land, the village of Riverton, and the waterworks for the town of Sullivan, Ind. One foot freeboard above a flood equal to the maximum flood of record, which occurred in 1913, will be provided.

The existing project was authorized by the Flood Control Act approved June 22, 1936.

The estimated cost of new work, revised in 1943, is $577,000 for construction and $18,000 for lands and damages. The latest published map is contained in House Document No. 100, Seventy-third Congress, first session.

Local cooperation.-Fully complied with.

Operations and results during fiscal year.--Operations during fiscal year consisted of preservation and repair prior to turning over to local interests; observation of high water seepage; surveys and studies of completed drainage and pumping installations; and preparation of plans and specifications for strengthening certain portions of the levee. The levee withstood several minor flood peaks during the year and prevented a small amount of crop loss. Local interests performed routine maintenance and operated the pumping plants during these flood periods. The costs during the fiscal year were $17,122.69 from regular funds for new work. The expenditures were $17,248.96.

Condition at end of fiscal year. The project was substantially complete except for strengthening certain portions of the levee where weaknesses were revealed during the flood of May 1943. The preparation of plans for strengthening the levee was practically complete at the end of the fiscal year.

The work remaining to be done consists of the completion of strengthening certain portions of the existing levee; continuation of data collection and studies of completed drainage and pumping installations; preservation and repair prior to turning over to local interests; and the formal assignment of the project to local interests for maintenance and operation.

The total costs to the end of the fiscal year were $471,300.39 from regular funds for new work. The expenditures were $470,584.28.

Proposed operations.—The balance unexpended on June 30, 1945, amounting to $88,615.97, plus an amount of $2.26 due from other projects, a total of $88,618.23, will be applied as follows:

9. BREVOORT LEVEE, WABASH RIVER, IND. Location. The Brevoort levee is located in Knox County, Ind., on the left bank of the Wabash River 104.5 to 127.5 miles above the

mouth, and on the right bank of the White River, 6.3 to 22.2 miles above its mouth.

Existing project. The plan of improvement provides for the construction of a system of earth levees consisting of the following features: Section I, approximately 16.2 miles in length, extending upstream from high ground at the Claypole Hills along the left bank of the Wabash River to a point approximately 3 miles above the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad bridge across the Wabash River to St. Francisville, Ill. ; section II, approximately 5.0 miles in length, extending from the upstream end of section I along the left bank of the Wabash River to high ground near the southwest city limits of Vincennes, Ind. ; section III, approximately 10.1 miles in length, extending upstream along the right bank of the White River from high ground at Claypole Hills to the downstream end of the Dicksburgh Hills and from the upstream end of the Dicksburgh Hills to the right bank of the Deshee River diversion channel at its confluence with White River; section IV, approximately 4.6 miles in length, extending along the right bank of the Deshee River diversion channel from the upstream end of section III to the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad embankment north of the Deshee River diversion channel bridge; section V, approximately 1.2 miles in length, extending from the upstream end of section IV along the north bank of the Deshee River to high ground near the Decker Road; one new pumping plant for the disposal of interior drainage; and appurtenant drainage structures.

The project will provide protection for approximately 50,000 acres of overflow land, and the villages of Zigville, St. Thomas, Brevoorts, and Cathlinette Settlement against agricultural season floods. Flood stages equal to or in excess of the established protection grade may be expected to occur on an average of seven times in each 100 year period.

The existing project was authorized by the Flood Control Act approved June 22, 1936.

The estimated cost of new work, revised in 1945, is $1,331,900 for construction and $124,000 for lands and damages. The latest published map is contained in House Document No. 100, Seventythird Congress, first session. Local cooperation.-Fully complied with. Operations and results during fiscal year.-Operations during the fiscal year consisted of observation of high water seepage; preparation of plans and specifications for strengthening certain portions of the levee; and preservation and repair prior to turning over to local interests. The levee prevented flood waters from entering the district during several minor flood peaks, the highest of which occurred in June 1945, and prevented the inundation of 27,500 acres of crop land. Local interests performed routine maintenance and operated the pumping plants during the flood period.

The costs during the fiscal year were $14,578.20 from regular funds for new work. The expenditures were $15,689.33.
