18. HARRISBURG, OHIO RIVER BASIN, ILL. Location.—Harrisburg is located in Saline County, Ill., in the basin of the Saline River, which is formed by the junction of south and middle forks, about 5 miles southeast of Harrisburg, Ill., and which flows in a southeasterly direction for 26 miles, and empties into the Ohio River at a point 867.3 miles below Pittsburgh. The city of Harrisburg, ill., is within the limits of the backwater area of the Ohio River during major floods.

Existing project. The plan of improvement provides for the construction of a system of levees and concrete flood walls, consisting of the following features: Section I, 15,116 feet of new earth levee, 3,075 feet of levee enlargement and 625 feet of concrete wall, extending from high ground at the north end of the city across State Route No. 34 to and along the north arm of the municipa! water supply reservoir, then across the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad near the bridge over the middle fork of the Saline and along the left bank of the middle fork to high ground along McHaney Street in Gaskins City, Ill.; section II, 2,730 feet of new earth levee, in seven sections across low divides and low portions of the spoil banks of the Harrisburg "strip" coal mines to the south and southwest of the city; two pumping plants for the disposal of interior drainage; and appurtenant structures. The project will provide protection for Harrisburg, Ill., including that portion known as Gaskins City, and will afford a freeboard of 3 feet above a flood equal to the maximum flood of record, which occurred in 1937.

The existing project has been selected for construction under the general authorization for the Ohio River Basin contained in the Flood Control Act approved August 28, 1937.

The estimated cost of new work, made in 1943, is $798,000 for construction and $20,000 for lands and damages.

Local cooperation. See page 5 for requirements. Rights-ofway for section I and the pumping plants have been furnished. Local interests have given assurances that the local cooperation requirements will be complied with for the remainder of the project.

Operations and results during fiscal year.-Operations during the fiscal year consisted of preservation and repair prior to turning over to local interests and preparation of plans and specifications for section II and movable closure parts. The costs during the fiscal year were $1,864.62 from regular funds for new work. The expenditures were $1,810.33.

Condition at end of fiscal year.–At the end of the fiscal year, the construction of section I was substantially complete except for movable closures, the pumping plants were complete, and the construction of section II had not heen started. Plans and specifications for movable closure parts and section II were essentially complete.

The work remaining to be done consists of the completion of plans and specifications; construction of section II, purchase and installation of movable closure parts; 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 $770,562.87 from regular funds for new work. The expenditures were $770,398.13.

Proposed operations.—The balance unexpended on June 30, 1945, amounting to $3,086.22, will be applied as follows: Accounts payable June 30, 1945
