This Progress Report by the Task Force on Effect of Urban Development on Flood Discharges. Committee on Flood Control, Hydraulics Division, ASCE attempts to provide, as a guide for engineers, planners, governmental officials, and all others interested in the problems of urban runoff, an annotated up-to-date bibliography of reports, papers, and other material pertaining to the effect of urban development on flood discharges. The report includes a brief discussion of the impact on flood runoff which can be expected by urban development and the factors directly affecting the runoff regimen of a drainage area, as suburbs and cities replace the rural landscape. Included is a listing of pertinent research projects which are underway with identification of areas where, in the opinion of the Task Force, additional research is required.
