Abstract

The water that drains from the land into creeks and rivers is called runoff. Supplying many of our basic human needs for water, runoff occurs chiefly as a residual of rainfall after Nature’s take – that is, after the persistent demands of evaporation from land and transpiration from vegetation have been supplied.
