Watershed Engineering

Assignment 7: Unit Hydrograph (Due Oct 15)

Virgil Creek Flood Control Dam
Next week you will be asked to evaluate the dry dam in Dryden for its ability to withstand the
100-year 24-hr storm in the Virgil Creek watershed.  To do this, you first need to determine the
hydrograph using the unit hydrograph method for the 24 hour storm. Hand in a one page
executive summary of your results, including the maximum flow rate associated with this storm. 
Also attach as an appendix a graph of your final hydrograph and all your calculations.

Watershed Parameters can be found on the Cayuga Lake Mapping Project web site.
