Read Selecting and Accommodating Inflow Design Floods for Dams This "Live" hydrograph courtesy of the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service shows the Schoharie Creek at Gilboa Dam water level changes over time.
The course provides thorough and consistent procedures for selecting and accommodating Inflow Design Floods (IDF's).
Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. The term PMF has been adopted by the Bureau which brings us in line with terminology used by all other Federal agencies.

Higher risks may have to be accepted for some existing structures because of irreconcilable conditions.
