1.1 This test method concerns measurement of selected hydraulic characteristics of hydrodynamic separators and underground settling devices critical to their function as stormwater treatment devices.
1.2 Units tested shall be of a size commonly manufactured, not a scale model.
1.3 As each stormwater treatment device is unique in design, so are its hydraulic characteristics (flow versus head and loss coefficients). A sufficient number of accurately measured data points are needed to define properly the hydraulic characteristics of each test unit. Therefore, it is imperative that the unit setup and subsequent testing methodologies be well defined and executed to ensure accurate flow and elevation data.
1.4 This test method addresses gravity flow operation only. It does not address performance of units operating under pressurized conditions.
1.5 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
