The functional relationship between detention dam inflows and outflows was derived in a

closed form in a recent work, which led to a theoretically derived probability distribution (TDD) of

the peak outflows from in-line detention dams. This TDD is tested using the generalized extreme

value (GEV) as a reference distribution for floods.
