Our firm has been asked to design a saltwater impoundment (pond) along an existing saltwater creek that will be used to hold crabs/shrimp. The pond will be approximatley 1.7 acres and 11 ft. deep. The pond will fill and drain through a single culvert connected to the creek. We'd like to maximize water exchange with the tide change and need to size the culvert accordingly. I'm thinking design would be similar to designing a manmade wetland.
Before we start digging too deep, I thought I would check on here and see if we can get pointed in the right direction. Any references, guidance, or pointers would be most welcome.
