Introduction to Skimmer Sediment Basins – Basics of Design to Advanced Modeling

3283

Most States now require sediment basins to discharge utilizing outlet structures that withdraw from the surface. Skimmers are the most common and cost-effective way to meet this requirement. This webinar provides information on the basics of how skimmer work and why they are utilized, importance of understanding flow rate and detailed information on how to design a sediment basin with a skimmer.

Objectives:

Understand what a skimmer is and why it is used

Learn the fundamentals of skimmer basin design

Understand importance of flow rate vs. skimmer size

Gain basic understanding of Advanced Skimmer Modeling methods

Become aware of benefits of post-construction uses for skimmers

 

 

1.




A primary function of a floating pond skimmer is:





2.




All skimmers of the same size flow at the same flow rate regardless of brand.





3.




One of the Three Basic Fundamentals of Skimmer Basin design is





4.




All States require sediment basins to have a permanent wet pool that is not drained by the skimmer





5.




A common range of dewatering time for a Sediment Basin is:





6.




You should use the required volume instead of the actual volume of a sediment basin to size the skimmer





7.




Using skimmers in permanent basins can help





8.




All skimmers have a constant flow rate, regardless of depth of pond





9.




A software system that can model sedimentology is





10.
A design review solution should allow you easily visualize designs and collect feedback.
