Abstract
The document reports on a 10 acre basin to collect and detain combined sewer overflows that bypass a pumping station during periods of high volume flow. Surface runoff accompanying rainstorms cause high volume flows which are diverted into the station channel. Such flows introduced highly toxic pollution loads into an Illinois creek and a fork of the Sangamon River. The retention basin was built to intercept these flows so that they could be stored temporarily and released at low flow rates to avoid shock pollution. In addition to the oxygen demand, production of algae may be objectionable at some installations for aesthetic reasons. Sludge accumulation must be taken into account in design of similar facilities. Suggestions for future designs of retention basins are included. (WRSIC abstract)
