      On this date, as blistering heat sapped the American West of much-needed moisture, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law a bill protecting “land resources against soil erosion.” Throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, and the Dakotas during the early s, high winds stirred the arid soil, loosened after years of rapid . The Soil Conservation Service (SCS) curve number (CN) method is one of the most popular methods for computing the runoff volume from a rainstorm. It is popular because it is simple, easy to understand and apply, and stable, and accounts for most of the runoff producing watershed characteristics, such as soil type, land use, hydrologic condition.

Soil conservation stores more of the runoff from excess rainfall in the reservoir of the soil for subsequent crop use; and this much water is kept out of streams, thereby contributing to flood reduction. Today these techniques of soil and water conservation are being prac- ticed in many countries with much benefit to great numbers of people.

The Soil Conservation Service model (SCS), developed in the United States, is a rainfall runoff model which allows the runoff coefficient to be changed as the wetness of the catchment changes over the duration of an event. The model is primarily intended for rural catchments, but it is Soil Conservation Service book appropriate and has been successfully applied to urban.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, and pay respect to Elders past, present and future. We also recognise the strong ongoing connection of First Nations peoples to the lands and water where the Soil Conservation Service works and their ongoing commitment to.
