What’s a Contractor to do When the Sediment Pond Does Not Work?

A good design, proper construction and frequent maintenance still offers no guarantee that a sediment pond will discharge turbidity-free discharge. So what can a contractor do to improve the effectiveness of sediment ponds, after it has been constructed according to design standards; but still will not accomplish its objective? Briefly I will discuss the complexity of runoff generated by Mother Nature. Then I will examine the benefits of five initiatives: upstream treatment, inflow diversion, pond slope stability, filtering berms and discharge techniques. While any one of these components will result in some improvement of discharge quality, the incorporation of all five components will significantly increase sediment trapping. Examples of each component will be illustrated. Coupling these components will be the key to success!
