Introduction to Designing and Sizing Hydrodynamic Separators

Course Information

For decades, hydrodynamic separators (HDS) have been used as a primary treatment device for stormwater. While these systems have been in use for many years, sizing and designing an HDS system can be challenging and confusing. Performance targets, sizing methodologies, confusing performance calculations from manufacturers, online vs. offline placement, and other factors must be considered for proper design and functionality of an HDS system.
