Subarea runoff parameters. SCS unit hydrographs

10-minute time interval used, due to the short concentration
and simple runoff coefficients were used to generate interior

Adopted values are shown in Table E-1.
Exterior river stage. Long record stage and discharge
Because of the short duration of flooding for both
the tributary and the interior streams, time increments less than
