Abstract: Urban Hydrology for Small Watersheds, Technical Release 55, was first issued by the Soil Conservation Service in January 1975. It is a guide for SCS field personnel for estimating hydraulic and hydrologic parameters used in computing runoff volumes and peak rates of discharge in urban and urbanizing areas. SCS has revised TR-55 to incorporate results of recent research and other changes based on experience in using and helping others use the original edition. Changes and additions have been made throughout the document; only the major ones are covered in this paper.
