I am trying to design a hydrostatic retention system for a riverine flood. I know the elevations and flow volumes during the design flood event, taken at the location, which is a real event from 2010 exceeding the FEMA 100 year flood. The project area is in a still water zone. I am trying to find an adequate value for the unit density of such water. I know that the CT river had a maximum sediment load of 780 mg/l. FEMA was no help. Any suggestions for a unit weight of riverine flood water?
