The Final Report for the Makaha Valley Flood Mitigation Study  overviews the existing watershed conditions;  summarizes the flood problem areas;  provides the hydrologic and hydraulic analysis;  presents recommended flood mitigation projects and measures;  and evaluates the effectiveness of each project to mitigate flooding.  This report also provides a summary of environmental impacts of the proposed flood mitigation projects and concludes with future actions needed for implementation.
