Abstract

The application of the Soil Conservation Servies (SCS) urban hydrology techniques is made to four watersheds. The parameters of the methods are obtained from standard SCS guidance and from calibration of watershed model HEC-I using the SCS method. A modified method of determining these parameters is also recommended to SCS runoff parameters are then used with design storms to illustrate the differences in frequency curves which may result.
