Long-term Performance Modelling of Stormwater Quality Ponds.
Three statistical models were developed to determine the long term suspended solids removal of extended detention dry ponds, wet ponds without outlet control, and wet ponds with outlet control. Results from the statistical models were compared with those from continuous SWMM simulations and computations using Driscoll's wet pond sizing procedure. Favourable comparisons were observed. Since the statistical models are all in closed analytical form, the required computations are minimal compared to other models. As a result, these models could be useful tools in the overall evaluation of the long term performance of stormwater quality control ponds.
