Abstract: While underground detention systems have gained wide acceptance in the quantitative treatment of stormwater runoff, the potential exists for substantial water quality improvement. Although traditional surface measures such as extended dry ponds and wet ponds still remain the most popular method, there are other systems that are beginning to demonstrate measured pollutant removal efficiencies. This paper presents examples of systems that address both quantitative and qualitative aspects of stormwater management.
