Development and investigation of a pollution control pit for treatment of stormwater from metal roofs and traffic areas

C. Dierkes, P. G\303\266bel, M. Lohmann & W.G. Coldewey
Source control by on-site retention and infiltration of stormwater is a sustainable and proven alternative to classical drainage methods. Unfortunately sedimentary particles and pollutants from drained surfaces cause clogging and endanger soil and groundwater during long-term operation of infiltration devices. German water authorities recommend the use of infiltration devices such as swales or swale-trench-systems. Direct infiltration by underground facilities such as pipes, trenches or sinks without pre-treatment of runoff is generally not permitted. Problems occur...
