STORM WATER RUNOFF FROM AN URBAN HIGHWAY DRAINAGE SYSTEM

THE PURPOSE WAS TO DEVELOP A BETTER METHOD THAN THOSE CURRENTLY USED FOR ESTIMATING URBAN RUNOFF IN DESIGNING URBAN HIGHWAY DRAINAGE SYSTEMS IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. AN UNDERPASS PUMPING STATION ON A DEPRESSED HIGHWAY WAS GAUGED FROM 1964 TO 1969 TO RECORD THE URBAN STORM RUNOFF INTO THIS STATION. EIGHTEEN OBSERVED SOTRM RECORDS WERE COMPARED TO THE COMPUTED RESULS BY THE RATIONAL METHOD, THE UNIT HYDROGRAPH METHOD, AND THE MODIFIED AREA-TIME METHOD. /FHWA/
