The present study was carried out to collect more information on rainwater systems and to investigate the importance of those assumptions on the actual performance of existing drainage systems. An extensive monitoring programme was set up, which recorded more than 2000 storms during the period of September 1996 to October 1997. The flow conditions monitored were essentially the rainfall on the roofs and water depths at upstream and downstream sections of the roof gutters. Standard tipping bucket rain gauges were used to collect rainfall data, whereas purpose made probes were developed at HR for the measurement of water depths and subsequent calculation of flow rates in the gutters. Data, supplied by the Met. Office and the Institute of Hydrology, were also obtained on wind speed and direction for the major storms recorded.
