Presentation Overview:

If you have to install a temporary sediment control basin, you might as well make it work hard for you.

In this session, we will discuss all the design and maintenance factors needed to achieve the maximum sediment retention. These factors include:

  • Geometry (length, width, depth)
  • Inlet and outlet structures
  • Flow control with baffles
  • The potential for chemical flocculation

It is possible to capture well over 90% of the sediment coming into a sediment control basin!.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand each of the factors important to sediment basin function.
  • Learn about research on sediment basin design and apply those findings to optimize function.
  • Learn about current design standards for some US states in relation to optimal design.
