Building & Slope:

Locate HPS at natural HP
Locate LPS below edge of bldg.
Allow space between bldg. & swale

Use of area
Existing vegetation

Set HPS Elevation:

Set LPS Elevation:

Scale length of centerline (H)
Subtract LPS from HPS to get "V"
Use slope formula to calculate slope
Verify slope is within acceptable range
7.
Calculate CL Slope:
Interpolate to find
existing elevation at HPS
Interpolate to find
existing elevation at HPS
East Swale:
V = 1.6'
H = 64'
1.6/64' = 2.50%
West Swale:
V = 3.4'
H = 95'
3.4/95' = 3.58%

Calculate distance to whole #contour
Calculate spacing of 1' contours
8.
Locate CL Contours:
4' to 21 contour
2.8' to 21 contour
35.5' between 1' contours
28' between 1' contours

Locate Contours

Connect contours to swale contours

Final Contours:

just past building
keep water flowing on-site
LPS Rules:
V = .10
G = .0358
H = .10/.0358
H = 2.8'
V = 1
G = .0358
H = 1/.0358
H = 27.9'
V = 1
G = .025
H = 1/.025
H = 40'
V = .10
G = .025
H = .10/.025
H = 4'
V = .30
G = .05
H = .30/.05
H = 6' to 21 contour
