´╗┐Waterway DRAINAGE BASINS

Slide 2

A RIVER SYSTEM ACTS LIKE A SYSTEM OF DOWNPIPES AND GUTTERING ON A HOUSE - IT ALLOWS THE MOVEMENT OF RAINWATER INTO THE SEA

Slide 3

A TYPICAL RIVER DRAINAGE BASIN. THIS IS THE CATCHMENT AREA FOR ALL THE RAIN THAT FALLS WITHIN THE Watershed (higher edge of land, the limit between one seepage bowl and another) Confluence (a place where two waterways meet) Source (the place where a waterway starts - a waterway framework will have various sources, for example, springs) Tributary stream (a littler stream that streams into a bigger waterway)

Slide 5

All rain falling inside a waste bowl winds up in the waterway framework. How can it arrive?

Slide 6

OVERGROUND Water runs downhill over the ground towards a waterway or stream - SURFACE RUNOFF Raindrops may fall specifically into a waterway or stream - CHANNEL FLOW

Slide 7

Raindrops INFILTRATE soil and shake. The water then moves underground towards a stream or waterway UNDERGROUND (highest level of immersed ground)

Slide 8

So, which course to the stream is speedier - surface overflow or penetration/groundwater stream? Reply: Rain going as surface spillover will get to waterways and streams considerably more rapidly, achieving a stream or stream with little delay,within a brief span traverse. Water that penetrates and voyages underground ventures a great deal more gradually, at long last achieving a waterway or stream a tiny bit at a time over an any longer timeframe. Which circumstance is a stream more inclined to have the capacity to adapt to, without flooding?

Slide 9

Scenario 1 Peak release overland stream high After how long does precipitation top? What is pinnacle waterway release in Scenario 1? (in cumecs) What is pinnacle waterway release in Scenario 2 (in cumecs) What is the slack time in Scenario 1? What is the slack time in Scenario 2? Situation 2 Peak release groundwater stream - bring down Peak precipitation A FLOOD HYDROGRAPH

Slide 10

So: Surface overflow Shorter slack time Higher waterway crest release More probability of FLOODING

Slide 11

Non-porous shake inside seepage bowl (water can\'t penetrate effortlessly) The precipitation itself - substantial, in huge beads (less inclined to invade) Urbanization inside the waste bowl - vast territories cemented or tarmaced over, making surface non-porous. (Storm channels are implicit, obviously, however these convey water rapidly to the waterway, making slack time much shorter) Water table effectively high (little extension for penetration if ground is as of now immersed) What conditions will make surface overflow more probable? Soak inclines in seepage bowl (water streams downhill quickly - less time for invasion to happen Few trees (tree roots break the dirt, giving little crevices to water to penetrate). Trees then take up and store water from underground

Slide 12

Storm Drains Storm channels are associated with waterways and streams by an underground system of funnels, called the tempest sewer framework, which keeps flooding from rain.

Slide 13

Which of these conditions connected to the River Severn seepage bowl in July 2007?

Slide 14

The rainstorms throughout the weekend twentieth 23rd July saw between 4-5 inches of precipitation - as much as would ordinarily be normal for the entire of July. Precipitation was exceptional with expansive drops. There had been some extremely wet climate in the Severn waste bowl in June-221% of past normal Ground in a few ranges was soaked

Slide 15

River Severn stream was at that point incredibly high in June

Slide 16

Although still essentially provincial, impressive urbanization has happened inside the Severn catchment in the course of recent years including the extension of existing urban communities, towns and towns , for instance the huge development of Redditch and Telford. (Environment Agency - \'A Flood Management Strategy For the River Severn Corridor\')

Slide 17

More extreme utilization of farming area amid the twentieth century has brought about bigger fields, more effective waste frameworks and bigger and heavier hardware bringing on more profound compaction of soils . This has brought about water being traveled through horticultural land quicker and the rate of keep running off being higher . This, joined with loss of forests and unpleasant vegetation (which assimilate and hold water), to farmland or urban improvement , may imply that volumes of water in streams are higher and water levels rise speedier. A few gatherings in the UK are at present exploring the impact of land and soil administration rehearses on soil disintegration and keep running off. (Environment Agency - \'A Flood Management Strategy For the River Severn Corridor\'

Slide 18

The Upper scopes of the Severn seepage bowl are in the Welsh uplands - inclines here are steep, favoring surface spillover. Rain water getting into the waterway rapidly here, will stream quick inside the stream channel towards the lower ranges of the seepage bowl - to spots, for example, Tewkesbury and Gloucester

Slide 19

Non-porous shake inside waste bowl (water can\'t invade effortlessly) The precipitation itself - substantial, in enormous beads (more averse to penetrate) Urbanization inside the waste bowl - extensive territories cemented or tarmaced over, making surface non-porous. (Storm channels are inherent, obviously, however these convey water rapidly to the stream, making slack time significantly shorter) Water table officially high (little degree for invasion if ground is as of now immersed) What conditions will make surface overflow more probable? ? Soak slants in seepage bowl (water streams downhill quickly - less time for invasion to happen Few trees (tree roots break the dirt, giving little holes to water to penetrate). Trees then take up and store water from underground ?

Slide 20

It is imperative that we make them comprehend of seepage bowl conditions and tempest hydrographs (both characteristic and man made) on the off chance that we are to comprehend what should be possible to diminish future surge dangers
