Abstract : With the growing need for improved flood plain management, desirability of a basic, uniform method of establishing flood frequencies for general use throughout the Nation is manifest. A consistent approach to estimation of the average annual value of flood losses--a major analytical component in determination of the best measure, or best combination of measures, in flood plain management--is dependent upon equable analysis of flood frequencies whether determined by Federal, State, local government or private engineers. With this need in mind, the uniform technique for determining flood flow frequencies set forth in this bulletin was adopted by the Council's Hydrology Committee.
