Section 10: Rainwater Runoff Management

Paper 10.5

A Simulation Model of Flood Runoff Utilization in Taiwan

K.F. Andrew Lo
Department of Natural Resources
Chinese Culture University, Taipei, Taiwan


Watershed data are being gathered in Taiwan that includes soil, topography, hydrology, and land use. These information along with the AGNPS model are used to assess watershed conditions and objectively evaluate storm-related generation and transport of non-point source pollution. The main objective of this pilot study is to simulate storm water collection using retention ponds and infiltration enhancement through tree planting. Runoff volume results from various storm sizes may provide adequate information for a follow-up on-site study to optimize flood runoff utilization in Taiwan.
