Culvert sizes needed for small drainage areas in the central Appalachians

Culvert sizes needed for small drainage areas in the central Appalachians

Northern Journal of Applied Forestry 5(2): 123-127

Within the Appalachians, peak discharge from small watersheds (54 to 96 acres) near Parsons, West Virginia, USA, was well correlated with drainage area for recurrence intervals of 10, 20, and 50 yr. Culvert sizes to carry expected flow rates are tabulated for drainage areas between 10 and 200 acres, and for standard conditions where: the water surface at the culvert inlet is the same elevation as the top of the pipe; the outlet is not submerged; and culvert slope is at least 2%.
