Standard Test Method for Measurement of Suspended Sediment Removal Efficiency of Hydrodynamic Stormwater Separators and Underground Settling Devices
|Publication Date:||15 June 2012|
This test method concerns measurement of the efficiency of hydrodynamic separators and underground settling devices in removing suspended sediment from simulated stormwater runoff under conditions defined herein. This test method is not intended for use in determining field removal efficiency.
Units tested shall be of a size commonly manufactured, not a scale model. This test method is not intended to address product scaling.
This test method is not for measuring the removal efficiency of filters or the scouring potential of hydrodynamic separators and underground settling devices.
In this test method, only gravity flow operation is
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
