Flood Runoff Utilization in 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.
