Paper Abstract

Retention tanks are an essential part of stormwater collection systems. This paper considers a probabilistic model which allows to design and plan modernization of retention tanks or conduct risk analysis of already existing ones. The proposal makes use of a submodel of high rainfall sum in a given time period and simple dependences accounting for the stormwater balance in the tank. The parameters used in the model require calibration. Therefore, its practical application necessitates the monitoring of runoff from the drainage area of the tank under analysis as well as of rainfall in that area.
