Abstract: The authors combine the principle of mass conservation with basic ideas from probability theory and then apply Monte Carlo simulation techniques to develop a family of design charts called storage performance functions (SPF). Results show that, to meet a specified level of storage reliability, the required capacity of a wastewater pond is larger for regions where climatic variability is high than for regions where climatic variability is low. An example illustrates how the SPF can be used to size a wastewater storage pond to meet a given performance standard.
