Determination of Rainfall Losses in Virginia, Phase II: Interim Report

Report No: 82-R1

Published in 1981

About the report:

This interim report summarizes results obtained for the project through May 1981. The objective of the study is to develop rainfall loss parameters for localities in Virginia. For this purpose, the state has been divided into eleven hydrologic regions, and loss parameters will be determined for three or more selected in each of these watersheds. Parameter selection curves will then be derived for the regions. To date 66 storm events across five hydrologic regions have been analyzed to obtain loss parameters. Of the five regions, Region P2, the piedmont portion of the James River Basin, has been completed. The results for this region are presented in this report.
