DescriptionA runoff study in the Driftless Area showed that both total flow and peak rate of flow from a 3-hour, 4-inch rain were strongly affected by the watershed cover. Peak flows ranged from 2.42 inches per hour for alfalfa meadow to 0.010 inch per hour for undisturbed forested watersheds was surprisingly similar.
