Indiana LTAP Stormwater Drainage Manual - Revised February 2008
The original HERPICC "County Storm Drainage Manual" was completed by Dr. ChristopherBurke in 1981. Jean Hittle, Director of HERPICC, was very supportive of the manual andprovided leadership. Norma Gray worked endlessly to type and format the equations, graphsand tables prior to the assistance of Word Processing. Several revisions have taken place overthe last 27 years. The latest revision, now titled Indiana LTAP "Stormwater Drainage Manual"encompasses the basis and theory that constitutes stormwater drainage contained in the originalmanual and expands many areas where current information or methods have made available newdata and techniques. The previous version, updated in 1995, added a study performed at PurdueUniversity developed new Intensity-Duration-Frequency (I-D-F) curves for several citiesthroughout Indiana by using hourly rainfall data from July 1948 to June 1991 (Purdue, et al.,1992). These curves are presented for determining rainfall data for the various cities in the statewhere the data was analyzed. Now, in 2008, the rainfall information has been updated to includeNOAA Atlas 14 data in Chapter 2. We have provided a website link so that users may easilyfind rainfall for their specific area of interest. In Chapter 3, StreamStats has been incorporatedutilizing new regression equations developed by Knipe and Rao. Another example of encompassing current techniques is the addition of Chapter 8, which focuses on computerprograms that are widely used for stormwater drainage computations, and the referencesthroughout the manual to various programs available for simplifying detailed hand calculations.All programs in Chapter 8 are now Windows based. Chapter 9, has been added to address therelation between stormwater and water quality as the rules for meeting water quality standardscontinue to evolve.In the process of updating the manual, there have been several people who have contributed agreat deal of their time and efforts. Thomas Burke and David McCormick worked as graduatestudents, School of Civil Engineering, in 1995. Dr. A. R. Rao assisted throughout the 1995revisions by reviewing and suggesting new methods that were implemented in the manual. In2007 and 2008, Megan Burke worked as a graduate student, School of Civil Engineering,correcting some errors and added Best Management Practices. Luke Sherry, Christopher B.Burke Engineering, Ltd., updated Chapters 2 and 3, wrote the original version of Chapter 9 andupdated the models in Chapter 8 to Windows based programs. Dr. G.S. Rao provided guidanceand suggestions throughout the latest update.Special thanks is also due to the HERPICC Advisory Board for their financial supportthroughout the revisions. In particular, Dr. C. F. Scholer, Past - Chairman HERPICC AdvisoryBoard, for his excellent guidance and support. Most especially, we are appreciative of thecontinued support of John Habermann at Indiana LTAP for the last 10 plus years as we haveupdated the manual and continue to put on one of the most beneficial conferences LTAP has tooffer!

Indiana LTAP Stormwater Drainage Manual – Revised February 2008
To: Manual Readers and UsersFrom: Jean E. Hittle HERPICSubject: HERPIC County Storm Drainage ManualCredits and AcknowledgementsHERPIC was indeed fortunate to have the talent and dedication of Mr. Chris Burke available topursue the subject of “storm drainage”.Chris, now completing his doctor’s degree in the School of CivilEngineering at Purdue, has produced an excellent treatise on drainage criteria and their applicationto the design of drainage works and facilities. The manual will serve, in a very positive way, theneeds of all engineers (county, city, state, federal) in the analysis of drainage needs to protectproperty against damage and to assure the delivery of public services.The initial HERPIC effort to develop such a manual was undertaken, some years back, by Mr.Phillip Dick, graduate student, and later by Professor John Spooner. HERPIC therefore recognizestheir endeavors and contributions to the initial manual effort.Using the limited work of Mr. Dick and Professor Spooner as a starting point, Chris Burkeexpanded the scope of the manual, developed a detailed outline and format, and provided a seriesof example problems that illustrate the application of the drainage criteria and analysis. Thefinished product is the “HERPIC County Storm Drainage Manual”, which is indeed an outstandingcontribution to Purdue University’s HERPIC program of extension and research to countyhighways.Special credit and acknowledgement is also due Dr. Donald Gray, Professor of Hydromechanics,School of Civil Engineering, for his review, comments and suggestions on the manuscript for theManual. Likewise, a special note of thanks and appreciation to Mrs. Frank (Norma) Gray, of theHERPIC staff, for her excellent typing service and untiring patience to producing the final typedversion of the manual manuscript.Jean E. Hittle - HERPIC
