The project will provide protection for the city of Evansville, Ind., 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, revised in 1945, is $4,600,000 for construction and $279,000 for lands and damages.

Local cooperation. See page 5 for requirements. The rightsof-way for sections of the work have been approved as follows: Knight Township section, June 13, 1939; Knight Township pumping plants, May 27, 1941; Howell section, unit 1, September 5, 1911. Rights-of-way for the remainder of Howell Section are being furnished as needed. 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 continuation of surveys and preparation of plans and specifications for the remainder of the project. The flood of March 1945 caused some flooding behind the Knight Township section. The Howell section, unit I was closed to high ground by a temporary mud box and sandbag levee. This section held out about 6 feet of water and prevented flooding except for accumulation of interior run-off. The costs during the fiscal year were $105,649.16 from regular funds for new work. The expenditures were $102,649.83.

Condition at end of fiscal year.–At the end of the fiscal year the construction of the flood walls and levees for the Knight Township section and for Howell section, unit I, was complete except for movable closures. The pumping plants for Knight Township section were complete except for purchase and installation of pumps, gates, and electrical controls. Preparation of plans and specifications for the remaining features of work on the Knight Township and Howell sections was practically complete and plans and specifications for Pigeon Creek section and pumping plants were 15 percent complete.

The work remaining to be done consists of the completion of the procurement and installation of pumps and gates for the Knight Township pumping plants; purchase and installation of movable closures for Knight Township and Howell section, unit I; the completion of surveys, plans and specifications, and the construction of Howell section, unit II, Pigeon Creek section, and pumping plants for Howell sections, units I and II and the Pigeon Creek section.

The total costs to the end of the fiscal year were $1,389,901.31 from regular funds and $11,811.56 from Emergency Relief funds, a total of $1,401,712.90, all for new work. The expenditures were $1,383,428.54 from regular funds and $11,811.56 from Emergency Relief funds, a total of $1,395,240.10.
