Using Baffle Boxes for Stormwater Treatment
Over the last eight years, the Brevard County Surface Water Improvement Program in Florida has used baffle boxes for stormwater sedimentation control at over 34 locations. As part of a Florida Department of Environmental Protection Demonstration Project for Indialantic Area Baffle Boxes, two baffle boxes were constructed in series on a 9.75 ha (24.1 ac) drainage basin in Sunset Park, near Indialantic. The first baffle box was installed in 1992 and long-term cleanout records have been documented on the performance of this baffle box. A second baffle box was installed in 1998 immediately upstream of the first baffle box to create a series configuration. Autosampler monitoring results for TSS, Total Phosphorus, COD, and BOD removal efficiencies are presented in this chapter for the second baffle box. In addition, the effectiveness of two baffle boxes in series is examined.
