A generalized package of hydrologic and hydraulic models and programs is developed for the quantitative analysis of watersheds and drainage networks. The package is microcomputer based and is available to interested parties. Full documentation is included in the Appendix. The approach applies a lengthy historical rainfall record to the system in continuous simulation. One of the most powerful operational hydraulic routing models available is adopted into the package. Output takes the form of statistical predictions of flood stages, discharges, storage requirements, and rainfall analyses for various return-periods. Computer runs are completely summarized. The package was applied to a 969-acre watershed in a 21-year simulation, and the results are presented herein.
