A Task Committee for the Design of Outlet Control structures studied the state-of-the-art practices concerning the hydraulic function, water quality, public safety, maintenance and aesthetic aspects of detention outlet control structures. Their findings and suggestions are contained in a report submitted to the Hydraulic Structures Committee of the ASCE Hydraulics Division. A literature search revealed little in the English language literature on this topic. The Committee's survey of professionals revealed a strong belief that detention does play a major role in stormwater management.
