Abstract:
After testing a large number of different kinds of divisor boxes, a type was finally evolved which gave practically the same aliquot at all stages of flow. The outlet or weir end of this box consisted of a number of identical rectangular slots, stamped out with a die to insure greater accuracy and uniformity. This multi-slot divisor box was found to be very accurate and entirely suitable for use alone or in series to obtain a definite aliquot of the runoff from erosion control plats. Its construction is described in detail and a description is given of a complete installation as it is now in operation at the Blackland Erosion Experiment Station at Temple, Texas.
