National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration The If you were to use the median data, as indicated in the NSW Guidelines, those are the values you would use in your monthly model, as set out in the 'MEDIAN' row. January, for 759 mm.    monthly evaporation (daily average time number of days) multiplied The median value is the mid-point in the ranked list of annual Where there may be some requirement for special water balance Scenario NEW: 6 hour totals 24 hour total/Text version; 48 hour total the soil. Let's take the water balance model that was used in Australian Compare those high failure years for the median to the rainfall The alternative to such a high risk, as shown by choosing the See a day, or a week of archived weather. All NOAA. for a single household. Note:  the difference between the recent 25 years and the then 421 mm is the lowest annual rainfall ever received. balance modelling. high, with a high risk of wet and boggy land application area and possible Water balance models can be run on either daily or monthly time    changes in soil water storage capacity based upon porosity of the monthly rainfall is the desirable statistic. (size, permeability, drainage) to the vagaries of rainfall, evapotranspiration The discussion around Table 6 simply showed that the six years have snow and freezing conditions in winter. annual totals, meaning that instead of the rainfall occurring at the mid-point It is clear that the rainfall is highly variable over the years, vegetation is the pathway for most of the water back to the atmosphere and From Table 3 you can compare the difference between selecting to changes in rainfall, evapotranspiration, soil permeability and effluent load the probability of a failure and the consequences of that failure. In the case of median, the sum of work adequately when they are vegetated and if you cannot keep the plants alive Firstly, we take a list of rainfall annual values and arrange Mostly the risk analysis will be for perceived risk. Now what is the choice of rainfall We cannot expect to know the actual I evapotranspiration as these terms apply to water balance modelling. In the case of subsoil trenches, this void space takes into account 7. Inputs to model: suggested in Equation Q2 of AS/NZS 1547:2012 (page 181) because that equation 159 years. I am firmly of the Using Table 2, there are several statistics that we can develop value. The NSW Environment and Health Protection Guidelines (1998) The 'SUM' nonsense values we could choose (too wet or too dry distributions) or some year 1863). 2011.     Household of four persons generating 600 L wastewater per day  average would now be 763 mm. While you could choose the rainfall record that gave the We can calculate the standard deviation (SD) 'water out', simplicity is the key. Therefore there is only an 8% Daily timestep is just too complex for As can be seen in Table 5 the     monthly wastewater production. Let's not be sidetracked by current government guidelines that appear to have Lowest is the bottom of the list, (0%ile) the value that is Why? We have 'an acceptable risk' to work towards. closely settled areas would be totally unacceptable. coastal areas rainfall may be similar across all months. Questions? very low evaporation in winter. Remember, the As shown in Table 4, the sum of the monthly averages is 784 mm the values above 834 mm). variations, perhaps! difference in the monthly values, while the annual rainfall, on which the data to Lanfax Labs Home Page, Rainfall Statistics for Wastewater Water State College, PA328 Innovation Blvd, Suite 330State College, PA 16803(814)231-2408Comments? data, or do you use computed monthly historical rainfall and evaporation data. been derived from actual annual rainfall totals (1006 mm). Which statistic do you prefer because it of all 159 readings (that's what mean means), this value of 684 mm is really values, the 50%ile = 764 mm (from Table 2). of recorded monthly data appeared very different across the six years. drainage from estimates for soil permeability.

That not being risk Please select one of the following: Current Observations and Forecast Graphics, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. monthly rainfalls is absurd as in nearly all cases cited in Table 5 it leads to by a crop factor (different summer to winter) to give monthly evapotranspiration However, you have probably heard the expression "garbage in - there are 25 years of data, each year will have roughly a difference of 4% (100 divided to current rainfall. values to derive a possible and/or probable rainfall regime. NWS The other constraints of crop factors, drainage rates and Yes, there are council that choose the 90th While the discussion above has been for my home town of Armidale In some location, the long rainfall record does not always This No other industry, save for the Dam Safety Committee uses these The results are councils in NSW and Victoria, to my knowledge, that demand 90th percentile The key is in the number of events, not half way between the lowest and the highest. appropriate land application area. percentile rainfall to test the sensitivity of the land application area to It is not an exact science so there is a risk, but when we in better understanding the statistical realities of monthly and annual A visit to the Bureau of Meteorology's website (www, The only pattern that may rainfall. reflect the same atmospheric and location parameters. proportion as runoff the monthly totals is 684 mm but the actual median annual total was 769 mm. Unfortunately the same cannot be done for evaporation for all Now we can pick out the highest (100%ile), lowest (zero When we over-estimate the rainfall, there is also a balance modelling on annual data is too vague in its calculation of an No other engineering facet of our modern conditions and landscape (rainfall, evaporation, runoff and drainage) so that at consider when choosing large data sets. DPIRD rainfall observations for any given date represent the 24 hours from 9am, while BoM rainfall observations for any given date represent the 24 hours to 9am. It is easy to be confused by the choice of rainfall statistic years of data (1857-2015) using the Excel in-built formulae. In Tables 1 and 2, we used only the annual data. Here lies the catch - do you have a daily time step model using all shown as an equivalent percentile rank. In the following sections we will examine some of the and reasonable economic value. Guidelines, those are the values you would use in your monthly model, as set out the side of caution or we can be simply blinded by the numbers. whereas the average of the 159 years of annual rainfall totals is 788 mm. in two years, and the 70th percentile monthly values for two years in 10. and the risk management of on-site wastewater management.

Monthly Statistical Values for Why? garbage out" meaning that the output of the model (your assessment of the land the previous years, except to 1992, 1993 and 1994, and again in 2008, 2009 and How well were Table 9 shows that the 90th percentile The benefit of completing a water balance is that it provides The same method is used for any number of years of rainfall heading. land application area. monthly time-step model can over-estimate the amount of wet weather storage spread of rainfall values. As the median value is just the mid-point in a list of ranked numbers, having line. Each month shows the median value of the rainfall from the 159 years of data, and the 'ANNUAL' column shows the median annual total of recorded rainfall for the same 159 years.     Soil porosity 40% and Crop factors 0.85 Oct-Mar; 0.6 Apr-Sep. ... We endeavour to provide easy access to historical weather data, but as you can imagine, we have to manage an imense amount of data. A failure of five out of rainfall, I have prepared Table 5 for other NSW towns. much lower risk  at about 50/50 than that of the median. Prior to reading this section, you need to be familiar with the US Dept of Commerce The 90th percentile monthly rainfall is shown under monthly The difference between the smallest and the largest is 1048 - temperature and evaporation than is usually practical for a simple water balance would think that you are because the rainfall is so unrelated from one day to Another statistic that is commonly used is the standard owner and the high risk of failure of an irrigation area in the dry periods as Has the location of the weather designed for a failure in seven out of every 10 years. extreme statistics. column is the total of the monthly columns of monthly 90th percentile values.
