A critical appraisal of retention pond sizing criteria for water quality treatment

G. Dimova, B. W. Ballard & R. Kellagher
This paper presents a critical appraisal of sizing criteria for permanent retention pond volumes in the UK, together with recommendations for a more holistic approach that considers both climatic influences and natural environmental processes. High frequency rainfall events are generally significantly smaller than the design pond volume (Vt) and thus, for most storms, the proportion of turnover of the permanent pool will be less than 1. It will therefore be the quality of the permanent...
