Hydrology is widely used in the design of hydraulic structures. Knowing the exact value of the specific flow of the project is a permanent preoccupation of Civil Engineers. This is why we propose in this article a set of maps giving the frequency specific flows (return periods of 10, 50, 100 years) on the Sebaou watershed in Great Kabylia (Algeria). These cards will be basic tools for design engineers to evaluate the project flow required to design a hydraulic structure such as a small dam, a sewerage network or a storm basin.
