 Summary:
 Design flood flows in small ungauged basins are traditionally estimated by calculating flood hydrographs resulting from design storms. This paper considers traditional application of the synthetic unit hydrograph and the SCS method and the choice of the design storm duration for a case study of the Obnica River basin. By comparing the design floods obtained from design storms and the observed flood flows, recommendations for the engineering practice are given.
