Page 43 - DEFINITION OF TERMS. The volume of water flowing in a stream — the "run-off" or "discharge"— is expressed in various terms, each of which has become associated with a certain class of work. These terms may be divided into two groups: (1) Those which represent a rate of flow, as secondfeet, gallons per minute, miner's inches, and...
Page 44 - The following is a list of convenient equivalents for use in hydraulic computations: 1 second-foot equals 40 California miner's inches (law of March 23, 1901). 1 second-foot equals 38.4 Colorado miner's inches. 1 second-foot equals 40 Arizona miner's inches. 1 second-foot equals 7.48 United States gallons per second; equals 448.8 gallons per minute; equals 646,272 gallons for one day.

Page 43 - Second-feet per square mile" is the average number of cubic feet of water flowing per second from each square mile of area drained, on the assumption that the run-off is distributed uniformly both as regards time and area.
Page 44 - The standard miner's inch of water shall be equivalent or equal to 1 J cubic feet of water per minute, measured through any aperture or orifice.
Page 44 - Colorado miner's inches for one day equals 5.17 acre-feet. 100 United States gallons per minute equals 0.223 second-foot. 100 United States gallons per minute for one day equals 0.442 acre-foot. 1,000,000 United States gallons per day equals 1.55 second-feet.
