Evaluating hydrodynamic behaviour and pollutant removal in various stormwater treatment pond configurations

K. Jansons, J. German & T. Howes
This research aims to establish a relationship between pond geometry and hydrodynamic behaviour. In this paper the mixing quality and pollutant removal efficiency of seven stormwater pond configurations are evaluated. Both two-dimensional depth averaged flow simulations (Mike 21) and a compartmental modelling approach are employed in this process. Outcomes of this study reveal the common design assumption that all stormwater treatment ponds are either plug flow or well mixed is flawed. Results also indicate that...
