Selecting a Storage Type

Once you have determined the amount of storage you’re going to need, you can use this step to actually create a pond that meets that storage. The software allows you to choose a variety of methods for describing the physical aspects of your pond. You can set it up by describing:

  • Elevation contours
  • Trapezoidal shapes
  • Manually entering in known incremental volumes
  • Underground Storage Chambers

You can also use a combination of these storage types whereby stacking one on top of the other. For example, you can setup underground chambers and then add contours on top of that to define additional storage above ground.

The first input is to select a pond. You may use up to 25 unique ponds per project, each numbered 1 through 25.
