Large-Scale Performance Enhancement Study of Sediment Basin Technology

This technical presentation will discuss research results of large-scale testing efforts focused on developing technologies to provide improved performance of sediment basins. The study, conducted at the Auburn University - Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF), includes the investigation of traditional and advanced passive treatment using a lamella-based high-rate settling plate system. Testing procedures, data collection, performance characteristics, and results of the study will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain insight on sediment basin needs, practices, functions, and performance.
  2. Learn about large-scale sediment basin testing and research findings.
  3. Attain an overview of the Auburn University Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF) experimental capabilities.
