    Download Documentation on Detention Pond Design (PDF File)
    File Size: 1318314 bytes
    File Date: Fri Sep 22 07:21:13 2006

    The traditional design of storm drainage systems has been to collect and convey storm runoff as rapidly as possible to a suitable location where it can be discharged. As areas urbanize this type of design may result in major drainage and flooding problems downstream. Under favorable conditions, the temporary storage of some of the storm runoff can decrease downstream flows and often the cost of the downstream conveyance system. Detention storage facilities can range from small facilities contained in parking lots or other on-site facilities to large lakes and reservoirs. This PDF file provides a general design criteria for detention/retention storage basins as well as procedures for performing preliminary and final sizing and reservoir routing calculations.

    File Date: Tue Mar 14 03:40:41 2006

    In response to legislative authorities of 1944 and 1954, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), formally the Soil Conservation Service (SCS), began the development of a Hydrology Guide for use in watershed planning. This effort became Section 4 "Hydrology" of the National Engineering Handbook. This development created the SCS Runoff Curve Number Equation. This paper explains the development of the relationship of Ia to S.

    Assignment of soils to hydrologic soil groups has been based on published criteria subjectively interpreted and applied by soil scientists. As a result hydrologic soil group placement for any given soil lacks consistency of method and correlation to the respective soil's physical properties. A method of placing soil into hydrologic soil groups was developed using fuzzy systems techniques. This method consists of a set of fuzzy system rules and evaluations that establish a consistency in the interpretation of hydrologic soil group criteria. The fuzzy system placement of soil into a hydrologic soil group correlates well with previously established placements. This approach also identified those soils that may have been improperly placed in a given hydrologic soil group and those that have insufficient data to make a proper group placement.

    File Size: 23255 bytes
    File Date: Tue Mar 14 03:48:03 2006

    Lag time, defined as the time from the centroid of rainfall excess to the centroid of direct runoff, was evaluated for over 50,000 rainfall-runoff events in 168 small watersheds in the United States ranging from 0.243 to 3,490 acres. In most watersheds a stable value of lag time was observed for the larger storms, with peak flow the variable that best showed this tendency. The watersheds were divided into groups to explain the variation of lag time between watersheds. The groups that had a significant effect in the regression equation were geographical regions, watershed management practices, and the stability of the lag time value for the bigger storms. Separation of watersheds by land use and hydrologic behavior did not significantly improve the regression analyses.

    The secondary influences on direct runoff depth are studied for a number of small agricultural watersheds in the United States. A variation of Curve Number function is used as a basis for primary rainfall depth response. Using 1830 events from 25 small watersheds with effective rainfall greater than 1.00 inch, the effects of prior rainfall (including initial abstraction), intensity, and storm distribution (pattern index) on departures from the fitted rainfall effects are evaluated.
