Wet Detention Pond Design for Highway Runoff Pollution Control

The objective of this research project is to develop a methodology for designing efficient wet detention ponds in the highway environment. This methodology shall include performance characteristics, design guidelines, conditions, limitations, and applications for use. A comparison will be made between wet detention ponds and dry detention ponds in order to show the advantages and disadvantages of each system.
