Abstract

This study investigates the spatial variation of small-scale flooding and muddy floods in rural areas in a medium sized study area (5516 km2) and the linkage with controlling factors. A strong relation exists between the nature of the problem and the site in relation to topography and landuse. This study also focuses on the use of retention ponds as a control measure, the problem of siltation of the ponds and to their potential for estimating sediment yield
