Any such obstructions will be removed as necessary for maintenance and access purposes and will not be repaired or replaced (Title 0; 914-14.010).
Find your project location on the Mean Seasonal Isohyet Map that can be found at the Hydrology Standards link (below) and determine the mean seasonal rainfall for your site. Then, use the 25-year Precipitation Duration-Frequency-Depth Curve found at the same link. Find 24-hours (1-day) on the x-axis, go up parallel to the y-axis on the graph to the mean seasonal rainfall for your site. Go horizontal parallel to the x-axis to the y-axis to read off the rainfall depth for the 25-year -24-hour storm.
