At the conclusion of the seminar, it is expected that participants will be able to understand the how differences in design standards and objectives affect the analysis and configuration of ponds for long term operation and safety.
5. Question and Answer/Open Discussion.
- Overview of pond components:
- Inlet, outlet, and flow control structures.
- Sediment forebays.
- Step by step review of pond design:
- Overview of how goals and objectives affect design.
- Event based and continuous simulation designs.
- Operation, Inspection and Maintenance.
- Types of monitoring.
- Planning of monitoring programs.
The seminar will appeal to those engineers involved in design of stormwater management ponds in urban and industrial areas.
