Design Tips for Detention Ponds
1 hour 30 minutes
Learn about types of detention facilities, typical applications, and technical disciplines commonly involved with facility planning and design.
This topic will provide you with a broad understanding of the state of the practice of urban stormwater detention facilities. The material will cover planning, permitting, master planning, modelling, design, construction observation, maintenance/monitoring and aspects of detention from the standpoint of helping public and private sector entities to address both stormwater quantity concerns (traditional drainage and flood control) and stormwater quality issues (e.g. reduction in pollutant concentrations and promotion of downstream channel stability). This topic will be useful and practical for public works department staff, federal, state, and local government staff, consulting engineers, land planning/landscape architecture professionals, and other water resources professionals.
• You will be able to describe hydrologic analysis including multi-frequency design basis, and overview of models that can be used including representative simple application.
• You will be able to identify the nature of outlet structures necessary to achieve specified hydrologic control, including management of water quality capture volume.
• You will be able to recognize types of detention facilities, typical applications and components, and technical disciplines commonly involved with facility planning and design.
• You will be able to discuss water quality benefits of detention including performance data.
