Every year, thousands of people are loosing their lives and significant financial losses occur because of flood disasters. Floods stem from basin characteristics. Floods can occur due to effects of snow melts and erratic rainfall because of shallow rivers even in summer months in the Akarcay Basin. In this study, Adaptive Hydraulics (AdH) model and The Finite Element Surface Water Modeling System (FESWMS) were used to generate a hydraulic model. Consequently, many settled areas would not face flood risk, but especially agricultural lands in some regions near the banks of streams can experience damages after floods.
