Document Type: Journal Paper


Hydrographs of measured storm sewer outflow from urban areas up to 7. 5 sq mi in size are analyzed; their characteristics are correlated with properties of sewers and drainage basins in order to permit construction of synthetic unit hydrographs for other unmeasured sewered areas; applicability of derived relationships is tested against measured outflow hydrograph for complex storm.
