I've been trying to understand the Modified Rational Method for pond sizing. One thing that is confusing me is calculating the outflow volume. In particular, the calculation calls for 1/2 of the inflow duration x control release discharge x 60 s/min.
Does anyone understand why one half is used as a multiplication factor on that?
