runoff will make it more likely to soak into the soil, instead of forming gullies or trenches atop the ground surface. 4 Steps for Controlling Erosion and Runoff: 1. Maintain groundcover so runoff can soak into the soil. 2. Prevent runoff and erosion. 3. Control runoff as it moves. 4. Capture sediment contained within the runoff.
Design runoff rates The capacity to be provided in a structure that must carry runoff may be termed as the design runoff rate. Structures and channels are designed to carry runoff that occurs within a specified return period (T R). e.g. 10 years for vegetative waterways, and 100 years for permanent channels. 1.3.4 Estimation of surface runoff
The composite runoff coefficient, C, reflects the runoff potential of the drainage area. The range of runoff coefficients varies from 0.35 to 0.95, with higher values corresponding to greater runoff potential. The composite runoff coefficient is the weighted average of all of the land uses within the drainage area.
Controlling runoff from existing urban areas is often more costly than controlling runoff from new developments. Economic efficiencies are often realized through approaches that target “hot spots” of runoff pollution or have multiple benefits, such as high-efficiency street sweeping (which addresses aesthetics, road safety, and water quality).
What is the Coefficient of Runoff? The Coefficient of Runoff, C, is the average percentage of water that runs off of a given surface material. A higher percentage of water that falls on concrete will run off than water that falls onto grass or sand. The Coefficient of Runoff is equal to the Runoff / Rainfall, expressed as a decimal.
The importance of accurate runoff quantification cannot be overstated. Estimates of peak rate of runoff, runoff v olume, and the time distribution of flow provide the basis for all planning, design, and construction of drainage facilities. Erroneous hydrology results in …
A wide variety of procedures have been developed to estimate runoff volume and peak discharge rate; and to route the runoff through stormwater management systems. This section discusses only a few methods which are acceptable for estimating the runoff treatment volume required to meet the water quality objectives of the Stormwater Rule.
total runoff i. e. it is sum of all the components of precipitation water. Direct runoff plus the losses gives total runoff. The runoff can be expressed in depth units for a certain area or it can be expressed in volume units. It can also be expressed in discharge units for a specified time. Hydrologic Cycle 35 Continued….

developed, the runoff volume from the development to any highway drain, sewer or surface water body in the 1 in 100 year, 6 hour rainfall event must be constrained to a value as close as is reasonably practicable to the greenfield runoff volume for the same event, but should never exceed the runoff volume from the development site prior to
to manage surface water runoff and mitigate the adverse effects of urban storm water runoff by reducing flood risk and controlling pollution. SUDS techniques allow surface water runoff from development to be controlled in ways that imitate natural drainage by controlling the rate of discharge to a receiving watercourse. SUDS may also provide
• It is essentially a coefficient that reduces the total precipitation to runoff potential, after “losses” – Evaporation, Absorption, Transpiration, Surface Storage. • Therefore the higher the CN value the higher the runoff potential will be.

NRCS runoff equation is the NRCS Curve Number (CN), which is based on soil permeability, surface cover, hydrologic condition, and antecedent moisture. Watershed or drainage area time of concentration is the key component of the dimensionless unit hydrograph. Several runoff computation methods use the overall NRCS methodology. The most commonly ...
diffuse sources. Polluted runoff is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground. As the runoff moves, it picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, ﬁnally depositing them into watersheds through lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters, and even our underground sources of drinking water.
•For a given catchment (watershed), runoff generated will change with intensity of rainfall (Area is same, vegetation is same) •When intensity changes runoff volume and rate changes. Therefore, we have to consider intensity in designing structures. •For soil conservation return period –10 years,

surface runoff increases after long, intense periods of rainfall. Type and amount of vegetation - dense root growth can inhibit the infiltration of water, and interception of plants’ leaves will delay infiltration (never stopped, as water will never permanently remain on the leaf). Compaction of soils will reduce the infiltration rate.
