Storm event data in the control and test catchments during the calibration and treatment phase of a urban tree canopy study in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, from May 2018 through September 2020: U.S. Geological Survey data release

January 11, 2022

These data were collected as part of a study to assess the stormwater volume reduction capabilities of urban street trees. In this paired-catchment study rainfall-runoff relations were developed in a medium-density residential area before and after half of the street trees were removed from the treatment basin. The Supplementary_Event_Data set contains rainfall depth and intensity, event date and duration, and paired runoff volume and peak discharge for 135 rainfall events that ocurred between May and September 2018-2020. Unit value discharge and rainfall data used to develop the Supplementary_Event_Data are also published in this data release.
