Abstract: This paper presents results of a study conducted on a small pond and watershed in Waterbury, Connecticut. The Soil Conservation Service method presented in Technical Release #55 (TR 55), and the 'Puls method', were used to estimate runoff and the effect of storm events on pond stage and storage. A means of monitoring and measuring pond outflow was devised. Current and historical weather data, together with interviews, site history, direct observations and the collected flow data were used to construct a conceptual model of the site's hydrology. Preliminary evaluation of the pond's potential for utilization under a specific agricultural philosophy is presented.
