Model tests based on the system in use by the Kansas State Highway Commission were conducted at a scale of 1:3 to provide additional information on the flow of storm water in street gutters and its interception by storm drains. The significant factors studied were the effectiveness of flow in channel and the effectiveness of grate inlets and curb openings. For most roadways and gutters, a grate inlet will intercept all of the flow which would pass over it and some 20% to 100% more, depending on the slope. A curb opening in combination with a grate inlet adds very little to the interception. Interception by a combined inlet is almost independent of the longitudinal gutter slope. (Author)
