The Grundfos handbook “Design of Stormwater Tanks – Recommendations and Layout” covers every aspect of stormwater tank design, sizing, installation and positioning, control strategy and equipment, and shows how such measures ultimately offer savings on investments.
Stormwater tanks can be built to almost any size and shape. The inlet and outlet can be managed by gravity, by a pump system or a combination of both, depending on hydraulic conditions in the system.
The variation in stormwater tank design is often due to differences in construction, and means that the operation of each stormwater tank must be considered as a unique case. However, regardless of whether the tank is renovated or newly constructed, the determining factor for the effective use and efficient cleaning is the hydraulics of the system, as it is the flow of water that cleans the tank.
