Webinar Overview:

The only sure way to eliminate storm water pollution is to eliminate storm water runoff. Detention systems are employed on a site to reduce the quantity of storm water runoff leaving a site by temporarily storing the runoff that exceeds a site’s allowable discharge rate and releasing it slowly over time. Infiltration systems are incorporated to reduce the volume of storm water runoff being discharged from a site. For the majority of these applications, corrugated metal pipe (CMP) is the “go-to” material for subsurface detention/infiltration.

In this webinar, Contech’s Detention Product Manager Gabe Weaver and Senior Storm Water Design Engineer Patrick Valentine share detention and infiltration system design best practices.

Topics will include:

  • Why detention/infiltration applications are valuable to our environment
  • How to optimize design and layout for cost efficiency
  • Pretreatment options for CMP detention/infiltration systems
  • Design red flags and common mistakes
  • Case studes on unique CMP systems
  • Online tools for designing CMP systems
