Abstract: This paper documents development of the WETPOND model, which simulates long-term pollutant removal by a wet detention facility. Pollutant removal is determined with an EPA procedure that addresses the physical process of 'dynamic' and 'quiescent' settling, which allows the facility designer to estimate pollutant load reductions caused by particle settling. Model input requirements include the physical characteristics of a wet detention facility and a SWMM runoff array.
