The paper presents theoretical yet practical guidelines to the determination of an efficient flood control procedure for a dam equipped with crest gates. The method presented and formulae derived are for the general case but may readily be applied to a specific dam by the insertion of the actual physical parameters and runoff characteristics pertaining to that dam and its catchment.
