I am designing a detention pond that allows for infiltration. As an overflow outlet, I'm using leaching catch basins w/ inlets set above the bottom of the pond (2 basins per pond). The catch basins are surrounded by stone and linked together w/ a perforated pipe surrounded by stone. I've tried modeling these components as a single node, w/ the above ground storage as one volume, the catch basins & their stone surrounds as 2 addtl. volumes, and the pipe w/ its stone as the 4th & 5th volumes. It's not working, because the software starts storing runoff at the bottom of the catch basins or in the perforated pipe, & later the pond fills. If I try to model the pond w/ catch basins as outlets that lead to the perforated pipe as a 2nd pond, there's too much water in the pipe & stone pond for the model to run. Anyone else had success modeling this situation?
