This has tended to disturb the status of water in the overall environment. The following is extracted from those guidelines: The selection of the design flood should be based on an evaluation of the relative risks and consequences of flooding, under both present and future conditions.

When flooding could cause significant hazards to life or major property damage, the flood selected for design should have virtually no chance of being exceeded.

Higher risks may have to be accepted for some existing structures because of irreconcilable conditions.

; in process industries and manufacturing and to produce energy hydro, thermal and nuclear.

This great need for water has brought into focus the fragility of environment associated with fulfillment of these needs and the need to guard against it.

Course Summary: The course provides thorough and consistent procedures for selecting and accommodating Inflow Design Floods (IDF's).

The IDF is the flood flow above which the incremental increase in water surface elevation downstream due to failure of a dam or other water retaining structure is no longer considered to present an unacceptable additional downstream threat.

Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages. Many past Bureau publications use MPF (Maximum Probable Flood) which has the same definition and usage as the PMF.
