Abstract : The hydraulic and kinetic relationships developed during this study can be used as the basis of a rational procedure for design of overland flow systems. The three basic steps in this procedure are: (1) Determine the detention times required to remove pollutants specified in the discharge permit. (2) Calculate the application rate needed to satisfy the longest or most critical detection time. (3) Calculate the land area required from the application rate and system design flow.
