Technical Release No. 55 (TR-55), 'Urban Hydrology for Small Watersheds,' was originally developed by the United States Soil Conservation Service (SCS) in the 1970's, and was revised in June of 1986. TR-55 was developed to provide practical solutions for a wide variety of small watershed hydrology problems including computation of peak discharge, hydrograph generation, reach routing, and detention storage estimates. This paper discusses the applications and theory of TR-55's Chapter 5, 'The Tabular Hydrograph Method. '
