Historical development in the Peachtree Creek flood plain and watershed, metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, and the reactions of planning officials, changes in water quality and land values are analyzed to ascertain the implications of historical experience for improved flood plain management policy. The report presents the historical sequences and causes and the role of governing officials in influencing development in the watershed from the time of earliest settlement, stressing flood plain development, analysis of the relative values of undeveloped lots on and off the flood plain and discusses the extent to which observed differences are caused by expected flood damages as opposed to differences in other residential choice factors, and changes in stream water quality associated with urbanization and assesses the magnitude of the problem created by storm water washing of urban areas even if no sanitary sewer effluent is discharged directly into the stream.
