Engineer Tim Spies, who worked on the project for KF Walter, said the water runoff rate will be reduced enough from the property to not cause problems.
A large proportion of impervious surface accelerates the runoff rate and produces shorter times of concentration or lag times as well as an increased peak flow and runoff volume; however, the proximity of impervious surfaces to a drainage system plays a significant role in these interactions (Shuster et al., 2005).
Non-operating/ excess balances are assigned a 40% runoff rate for corporations and government entities and 100% for financial institutions, making them the least valuable to banks.
Estimation and determination of runoff rate and properties of the desired watershed make the optimized use of water resources possible and facilitate the planning of watershed activities as well as the design of water structures of rivers and streams.
However, the runoff rate is most sensitive to slope change; beyond a soil- and cover-dependent threshold, it is the dominant erosive process.
The increasing trend in runoff rate of TH varied during different times of the year, increased by 44% from October to February in the winter flow, by 24% in the spring flow and by 27% in the summer flow, but the streamflow decreased in BH.
A series of computer programs were used to retrieve data and calculate total rain, rainfall intensity, runoff rate, and total runoff for each event.
Under these site and environmental conditions, any combination of compost and mulch reduced runoff volume, peak runoff rate, and soil loss relative to a straw blanket with PAM.
The design of soil conservation structures, reservoirs, spillways, and channels must be based on runoff rate and/or volume.
