Hello, I am still struggling with finding a way to cut a polyline at a specific length.  It is more complicated than it sounds and I am stumped as what to do.

Here is the problem:
I have a set of water course (polyline) data.  Each individual water course within the data set is connected to a common "main stream". 
At a particular location along the main stream is a point ( a seperate point shapefile).
I need to measure from the point along the main stream, then up each individual watercourses to a maximum distance of 1.5km, and then cut the rest off.

Can this be done using one or multiple tools.

Thank you,
