Contains a report providing estimates of potential debris-flow volumes for Centerville Canyon, Utah. The debris-flow volumes were estimated to aid Centerville City in sizing a debris basin for reducing the debris-flow hazard on Centerville Creek. The debris-flow volume estimates include debris flows initiated by rainfall following wildlife, and rainfall and snowmelt debris flows initiated independently of wildfire conditions. The report summarizes the methods used to estimate debris-flow volumes and provides a comparison of estimated and historical debris-flow volumes from nearby canyons. The cross-channel profiles measured along the creek are included as an appendix.
