I seem to recall that we used to have a liter - meter thumb rule at Mare Island Naval Shipyard.  In other words, if one were to spill one liter of water it would spread over approximately one square meter of area.

 Does anyone have a reference for how far a specified volume of water will spread? For example, the Navy RadCon Manual had a thumb rule that a gallon of water will cover 40 square feet.  I thinks that's in their Appendix T but I don't have that manual at my desk anymore.
