Detention Pond Outlet Design for Pollution Controlby Clifford W. Randall, Virginia Polytechnic Inst &, State Univ, Blacksburg, VA, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Water for Resource Development
Abstract: Stormwater runoff detention ponds were originally developed for the control of flooding and the designs of the outlet control structure must be modified to obtain pollution control objectives. Outlet control structure design should encourage either sedimentation, biological action, filtration or soil infiltration, or combinations of them, to achieve substantial pollution reductions.
