Abstract

The time lag prior to peak runoff following rains of comparable high intensity increased by approximately 80 per cent in the largest event after the construction of contour banks. Although 80 per cent more runoff also occurred because the catchment was wetter and had been cultivated for three years in a row, the peak rate of runoff increased by only approximately 20 per cent. That the peak rate was not increased by 80 per cent, may be primarily attirbuted to the effect of the contour banks.
