The Stormwater Detention System

The freshwater system that was considered by Krishnappan and Marsalek15 is a storm-water detention pond in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The layout of the pond is shown in Figure 8.1. The pond consists of two cells; a wet pond and a dry pond. The surface area of each pond is about one half of a hectare. The permanent depth of water in the wet pond is about 1.2 m. The pond was constructed in 1982 to minimize the impact of runoff from a newly built shopping plaza on the Little Cataraqui Creek.
