Culvert operation should be evaluated for flows other than the peak design flow because: (1) It is good design practice to check culvert performance through a range of discharges to determine acceptable operating conditions, (2) flood plain regulations may require the delineation of the year flood plain, (3) in performing flood risk 5/5(6).

In contrast, for Iowa City, the flood peak of 28, cfs was indeed originally estimated to have been about a to year flood (Schaap and Harvey ), but is now estimated to be about a to year flood (FEMA ) based on a longer period of record.

Surface water hydrology is the focus of the book which is presented in three sections: Hydrologic Processes, Hydrologic Analysis, and. As a noun: one of two or more confluent streams; the junction of these streams is their confluence.
