A constructed pond that captures storm water runoff for the purposes ofÂ retention and treatment.
A facility that collects water from developed areas and releases it at a slower rate than it enters the collection system. The excess of inflow over outflow is temporarily stored in a pond or a vault and is typically released over a few hours or a few days.
a body of water that is used to collect storm water runoff for the purpose of controlling the release of this runoff
a man-made feature built to hold and store flood water or other surface runoff for later release
a man-made structure for the temporary storage of stormwater runoff with controlled release during or immediately following a storm
a pond which temporarily detains the storm water discharged from an area
A lined or unlined hole in which surface drainage is captured, held temporarily, and then released steadily.
A water impoundment made by constructing a dam or an embankment, or by excavating a pit or dugout usually to provide temporary storage of runoff.
a basin constructed to store water temporarily to attenuate flows.
A storm water system that delays the downstream progress of storm water runoff in a controlled manner. This is typically accomplished using temporary storage areas and a metered outlet device. (As opposed to a less common Retention pond)
A pond to collect and temporarily store stormwater runoff. Pollutants are allowed to settle out, and the water is then gradually released to surface waters.
A low lying area that is designed to temporarily hold a set amount of water while slowly draining to another location.
