This standard is intended to guide designers on the purpose, design, selection, installation, and maintenance of a sediment basin when used as a temporary sediment control practice to detain sediment from stormwater runoff prior to discharge from a construction site.

Included in this package is the recorded webinar from March 24, 2021 discussing this standard. Upon completion of the webinar, you will receive 1 Professional Development Hour. 

Developed by the IECA Standards and Practices Committee.


Recorded Webinar
A Performance-Based Design and Installation Standard for Sediment Basins
Open to view video.
Open to view video. Sediment basins detain sediment from stormwater runoff and are heralded by industry and research for effective sediment capture. Sediment basin design and implementation vary nationwide, therefore producing varying results. Proper design and implementation of sediment basins are critical and must consider site-specific factors such as project duration, drainage areas, precipitation patterns, and other site parameters. This presentation will describe a sediment basin design and installation standard and design guidance developed through a comprehensive literature review of current state agency guidance and performance-based research. Sediment basin design components, including hydrology and capacity, geometry and placement, inflow channels, velocity dissipation, dewatering, auxiliary spillways, erosion control, safety, and flocculants, will be covered during this presentation.
