Detention Design


Is Your Project Required to Have Detention?

Detention ponds are an important part of mitigating the hydraulic impacts of land development. Some development projects can avoid detention facilities through a downstream assessment showing no adverse impacts to existing facilities downstream. However, many development projects are required to have detention by the local municipality to mitigate off-site impacts.

We Prioritize Purpose and Efficiency

To properly size your detention pond, Cardinal engineers pair their understanding of a detention pond’s purpose with the importance of minimizing the pond’s footprint in order to cut down on construction costs and maximize the usefulness of the surrounding property. Our team optimizes the size and design of every pond with constructability in mind.
