Flood frequency estimation for an urban catchment using continuous simulation

G. A. Jenkins & D.B. Newton
Urban development of rural areas generally has a significant impact upon the hydrologic and hydraulic regime of nearby creeks and rivers. The removal of vegetation and replacement with buildings and paved surfaces also significantly affects the water quality and morphological characteristics of the receiving waters. An understanding of the hydrologic impacts of urbanization is essential for the assessment of the ecosystem health of urban waterways, as well as for the prediction of flooding. This paper...
