Cisterns are usually considered for their water supply benefit. This paper evaluates how effective cisterns are as flood control measures as well as water supply. It considers a problematic situation that is becoming common in the southwest – residential areas on small lots where over half the lot is impermeable. The study uses a simple mass- balance relationship with daily input of rainfall to the cistern and daily use of the water by two citrus trees.
