Rain Event – Frequently Asked Questions

Storm sewer pipes are designed for 5 or 10 year rain events. Storm water ponds are designed for 100 year rain events.

The US Weather Bureau defines these events as follows:
5 year – 3.6 inches in 24 hours
10 year – 4.3 inches in 24 hours
100 year – 6.1 inches in 24 hours

These numbers are based on data collected by US Weather Bureau. They used that data to determine that there is a 1 in 100 chance or 1% chance of a 6.1 inch rainfall happening in any given year. This 1/100 chance has been phrased as a 100 year event.

It is a statistical number not a historical number. A 100 year rain event doesn’t mean you won’t see a 6 inch rain for a 100 years, but there is a 1% chance any given year you will see a 6 inch rain.

The amount of rain that Gaylord received exceeded the 100 year rain event. At this point I wouldn’t be able to tell you what type of event this would be considered.
