Part of: Irrigation and Drainage
Abstract: On 18 May 1980, the eruption of Mount St. Helens created a massive landslide which covered 32 square miles and stripped all vegetation from 150 square miles. A study of changes in hydrologic characteristics of the Toutle watershed show a dramatic decrease in time of concentration and an increase in the peak discharge frequency relationship.
