I've noticed that a lot of reviewing agencies (I work in Pennsylvania and surrounding states, USA) are now accepting the use of the National Flood Frequency Program for determining peak stream flows. (For designing a bridge into a residential development, for example.) Depending on where you are in the US, there might only be a couple of input values. For instance, in Pennsylvania, Region B (Northwest corner of the state), the only inputs are drainage area, area controlled by lakes/swamps/reserviors, and the old C&B flood region. That seems pretty "quick and dirty." I'm curious as to how many people are using this method and what they think of it.
