Simplifying Stormwater Detention Design with Precast Concrete & Hydrologic Modeling


Sponsored by: Oldcastle

 Increasingly, stormwater management is going underground. Offering smaller footprints, larger stormwater capture, and better flow mitigation, many facilities are looking to incorporate underground precast stormwater detention/retention systems at their sites to meet NPDES MS4 permit and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements. But…how do you know what type of system is best for you AND how can you accurately size and design a system for your site's stormwater needs?

Join Laddie Fromelius and Doug Beyerlein, P.E. for a webcast exploringunderground precast concrete modular stormwater detention/retention systems; their design, installation, and maintenance best practices; and how you can design your system—using hydrologic and hydraulic modeling—to meet your stormwater management, NPDES MS4, and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements.

In this webcast, we'll explore precast concrete solutions for underground stormwater storage AND how you can use hydrologic and hydraulic stormwater modeling to design a system to fit your site. Within this discussion, we'll examine how precast stormwater detention/retention systems work, and their key considerations, elements, and advantages. Fromelius will outline the design, installation, and maintenance best practices for underground precast stormwater detention / retention systems, and how you can apply these to your site to maximize your storage capacity, mitigate your peak flow, and meet EPA recommendations. While discussing stormwater storage, Fromelius and Beyerlein will cover the principles of hydrology and hydraulic modeling and how you can use a stormwater modeling program to accurately (and easily) size stormwater control facilities  to meet NPDES MS4 permit and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements. We'll also take a tour through real-world examples and case studies of precast systems at work in several applications. And finally, you'll walk away with a step-by-step guide of how to apply underground precast concrete stormwater systems at your site.

Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Understand hydrologic and hydraulic modeling principles and basics.
