Abstract

A regional flood-frequency curve is presented for the Santa Ynez River and adjacent areas in southern California. This curve was developed to improve estimates of return periods for very extreme floods on the Santa Ynez River and to evaluate the likelihood that Bradbury Dam, with its present spillway capacity of 4500cms, would be overstopped. The flood-frequency curve was fit using an index flood method and the assumption that floods in this region follow the log-Pearson Type III distribution
