This study monitored stormwater management ponds in two towns in the Greater Toronto Area (Canada) during site development. Additionally, using a sediment-transport model, the effect of pond geometry on sediment removal efficiency in various storm conditions was evaluated. The authors focus on the effect of the ratio of pond length to pond width in: 1) minimizing the short-circuiting effect in some stormwater management ponds, and 2) improving the sediment removal efficiency of such ponds.
