An investigation into the Lake Harrison detention pond system revealed that the design enhanced the removal efficiency of total suspended solids (TSS) and, to a lesser degree, nutrient constituents in the runoff. The design increased TSS flocculation, which ensured particulate removal, and protected settled particles from resuspension by scouring.
