Storm Water BMP: Understanding the Wet Pond/Retention Basin. Using Storm Chamber for storm water BMP is an incredible option because of the ability of the trench walls and plastic pond liner or similar material to cover the bottom. Retention is a stormwater BMP that takes advantage of the conventional storm water basin. This collects water from the surrounding area, preventing flooding, erosion, and other types of property damage. What makes this...
Storage and Detention Leads as Stormwater BMPs. Underground stormwater detention systems that allow detention are considered one of the most effective stormwater BMP systems available to control the flow of stormwater.
Although most people associate plastic chamber systems with storm water storage, they can also be effectively used for storm water conveyance. Due to the large size of the StormChambers®, a single row can provide a conveyance capacity approximately equivalent to 48 inch diameter pipe.
When investing in stormwater systems, it’s important to not only consider the requirements for storage, but also consider the standards for water quality BMP and exceed them. When combined with SedimenTrap™, no other StormChamber® system can match or exceed the expectations for sediment maintenance at such efficiency.
