Sediment growth and time for sediment removal
Sediment growth and time for sediment removal (maintenance rate)
Calculation of growth rate (mm/year) of sediments accumulated on the bottom surface of ponds and underground basins can now be carried out.
Furthermore, the number of years until it is time for sediment removal is calculated. The results are reported in the Result report.
An additional calculation of sediment growth and this maintenance rate is made for a pre-treatment part, e.g. a forebay to a wet pond or a pre-basin.
You can input how much of the total bottom area this subarea occupies.
(The function only works in projects started after 2017-02-20 where it is linked to the update “Unique treatment facilities per Subarea”)
