Probable maximum flood (PMF), probable maximum precipitation (PMP), inflow design flood, environmental design flood, threshold flood, regional flood and return period are just some of the terms involved in designing tailings and contaminated water management facilities. This presentation provides working definitions of these terms and explains why they are necessary and how they are selected. The importance of selecting the proper distribution for a runoff event will be illustrated through a simple example.
