STORM RUNOFF DETENTION FOR POLLUTANT REMOVAL

This paper presents pond charts that can be used as a design aid to size a detention basin and the outlet structure. The charts are valid only where the detention time and the evacuation time are defined with respect to 90% of the runoff volume. Similar charts can be developed for different percentage volumes if desired. A limitation of the proposed charts is that the shape of the inflow hydrograph is assumed to be similar to that of the Soil Conservation Service dimensionless hydropraph.
