A stormwater management model for the West Branch Brandywine Creek, Chester County, Pennsylvania; 1982; WRI; 81-73; Sloto, Ronald A.

Summary

Three subbasins in the West Branch Brandywine Creek watershed were modeled by the Dawby, Schaake, and Alley distributed routing rainfall- runoff model. The Honeybrook subbasin could not be calibrated because of nonrepresentative rainfall data. The Coatesville subbasin was calibrated, but not verified; the average standard error of estimate is 34 percent for peak discharge. The Modena subbasin was calibrated and verified. Average error for peak discharge is 38 percent for calibration and 24 percent for verification. Predictive simulations using selected storms were made to determine the effects of projected population and four proposed flood-control structures in the Coatesville and Modena subbasins. Simulation of projected population [...]
