Thirty-one case studies of floodplain development pressures and federal programs are documented in this report. The cases document the sequence of federal programs and the relationship of the programs to community development and floodplain development. All localities selected for the case studies were recipients of grants through the '201' Wastewater Treatment Works Program of The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Case study reports are included in the section which follows. The following information about each case study is present: Location of the community; Population trends; Characteristics of the floodplain; Federal programs in the community; and Effect of federal programs on floodplain development. The map following each case study report illustrates the general location of the 100-year floodplain. The locations of major federal construction and development programs are indicated.
