Hydrodynamic separators (HDS) are stormwater management devices that use cyclonic separation to control water pollution. They are designed as flow-through structures with a settling or separation unit to remove sediment and other pollutants.[1] HDS are considered structural best management practices (BMPs), and are used to treat and pre-treat stormwater runoff.

Underground Stormwater Storage Case Studies

Underground Stormwater Storage Case Studies

Underground retention and detention systems continue to increase in popularity as urban and suburban infill prompts careful consideration of proposed land uses on high-value real estate. Placing stormwater management underground frees up space for higher value land uses and greater return on investment. Additionally, trends toward water awareness and reclamation,
