Storm Water Retention

Types of Storm Water Retention

There are several types of storm water retention facilities that can be built in your property. However, choosing the right design is very important. Here are some of your options:

  • Retention Ponds. These are also called “wet ponds.” They are designed to hold water permanently. When the amount of water entering the pond exceeds in volume, water is slowly released downstream (or to the nearest creek or river). You will need to maintain the pond if there is any damage to the facility resulting from excess sediment or shrub vegetation growth.

  • Rain gardens. They are a replica of natural vegetation that absorbs and treats surface runoffs from pavement or landscaped areas through soil and mulch. Rain gardens require regular maintenance and mulch replacement, especially when the vegetative cover becomes wilted or there is sediment erosion present.

  • Retention tank. This is an underground tank or vault where water is retained and used for another purpose instead of just allowing it to drain. It is also used for harvesting rainwater from rooftops or hard surfaces to irrigate gardens.

  • Infiltration trenches. They are composed of gravel and are designed to let storm water runoffs ooze into the soil. You will need to maintain these trenches if there is vegetation growth or waste and other debris is present.
