Part of: Water for Resource Development


In many cases developers must use a portion of their land for temporary detention of storm runoff in order to comply with local ordinances. A simple method is outlined which yields the minimum volume of temporary storage needed to meet local requirements at minimum cost. The types of outlet structures that can be used and the costs to be included are discussed and are dependent on site conditions, land uses, wishes of the developer, and whether or not water quality is included as a purpose.
