Catchbasin Technology Overview and Assessment (EPA/600/2-77/051) May 1977

Various catchbasin configurations and sizes were evaluated for hydraulic and pollutant removal efficiencies using hydraulic modeling analyses.

Detailed study findings are presented in sections dealing with:

  1. A state-of-the-science review
  2. A review of variables affecting catchbasin efficiency
  3. Hydraulic modeling analyses
  4. An assessment of the role of catchbasins
  5. An economic evaluation of alternative storm and combined sewer designs
  6. A review of recent developments and continuing program needs

Detailed example problems of the evaluation of catchbasin performance and economics are included.

A recommended catchbasin design configuration based upon hydraulic performance and sediment capture efficiency is presented.
