Site Engineering for Landscape Architects: Estimating Runoff Rates, Volumes, and Required Detention
The USDA NRCS, formerly known as the Soil Conservation Service (SCS), has developed a methodology for determining runoff rates and volumes. In this course we will cover rainfall patterns, the procedures of TR55 including computing runoff, hydrologic soil groups, and discharge method and estimating detention storage volume.
