Design Tips for Detention Ponds


Learn about types of detention facilities, typical applications, and technical disciplines commonly involved with facility planning and design.

This topic will provide you with a broad understanding of the state of the practice of urban stormwater detention facilities. The material will cover planning, permitting, master planning, modelling, design, construction observation, maintenance/monitoring and aspects of detention from the standpoint of helping public and private sector entities to address both stormwater quantity concerns (traditional drainage and flood control) and stormwater quality issues (e.g. reduction in pollutant concentrations and promotion of downstream channel stability). This topic will be useful and practical for public works department staff, federal, state, and local government staff, consulting engineers, land planning/landscape architecture professionals, and other water resources professionals.
