In this exercise, we will build upon the skills learned in previous exercises (Creating a VO Model in Schematic View and Using Resource Library) to learn how to design a pond using the Route Reservoir command.
The Route Reservoir command in VO can be used to size the active storage components of a pond, including extended detention and quantity control. In this exercise, we will focus on calculating the volume of storage required for quantity control. For this example, we are designing a pond for a subdivision that must control the flow of the post-development to the pre-development level. First, we will calculate pre-development flows and get the target flows. Then, we will create a pre-development model with a pond Route Reservoir. In the end, we will practice how to size a pond to meet our target flow.
