Open, grassy surfaces likewise capture and slow the movement of water and retain soil moisture. In contrast, pavement and compacted or indurated soils impede infiltration and increase surface runoff. Runoff from impervious surfaces consequently flow to streams, rivers, and storm sewers and contribute to flooding and contamination of surface waters. 1 Land Use and Curve Numbers Land use impact is significant for hydrologic analysis because it is a key variable in hydrologic models that predict surface runoff from precipitation events.
