[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.6402]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Then in 1960 a city couple submitted a bill for $4,000 to the city council, claiming the foundation of their home was washed out by blooding caused by the installation of flood gates at Belle Isle Lake. The claim was denied. In April, 1965, a backwash from the flooding of Deep Fork a year earlier hit the county equalization board when two homeowners sught a reduction in their tax assessment because of flood damage...Deep Fork again went over its banks during a rainstorm in September, 1965, and several homes in the 3200 block NW 34 were damaged. W. E. Hedge, city directior of public works, declared there was no immediate or temporary solution to flooding problems along the creek. Undaunted, the city council signed a $60,000 contract with Benham-Blair & Affiliates, engineers, for a comprehensive study of needed improvements along the Deep Fork drainage area. On the basis of the study, the dam and overflow pond in Will Rogers Park was propused as "a beginning step" in solving the flooding problems of the area. The pond would be the first step toward flood protection along the creek. Savage Stream, fed by rains totaling up to four inches, Deep Fork Creek is shown racing under a bridge at NW 34 and Drexel Friday. Two moods of Deep Fork Creek - one as it is after a heavy rain and the other as a docile stream - are shown in these pictures taken from a bridge at NW 34 and Drexel."

[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.6401]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Recent damage claims by seven northwest Oklahoma City homeowners are the latest in a long list of complaints resulting from flooding along Deep Fork Creek. The whole mess began in May, 1955, when an unusually heavy rainstorm sent the creek out of its banks. Flood waters swamped many homes in the vicinity of NW 42 and Altadena. In a few days city councilmen were flooded too - by complaints from residents whose homes were damaged. Several filed claims, which were later denied by the council. A year later, the city successfully defended itself in a district court mandamus suit by starting construction on a storm-sanitary sewer project in the flood area. The property owners dropped their case. However, by that time the area around NW 42 and Altadena had begun to resemble a deserted village as homeowners continued to move out. Many were unable to sell their homes. At right is the scene at the same location Saturday, as Deep Fork trickled along tamely."
