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.

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
