Unit hydrographs are used to predict the response of a watershed to precipitation events when historical data is not available. They utilize the physical characteristics of each watershed, specifically, slope, longest hydraulic length, land use, area, and soil composition. Although a variety of synthetic unit hydrograph methods are available in the profession, history shows that the Soil Conservation Service’s “dimensionless unit hydrograph is the most commonly used method.
