Contech Stormwater experts discuss designing stormwater BMP’s, regulations, maintenance issues, and all things stormwater.
For the majority of applications, corrugated metal pipe (CMP) is the “go to” material for subsurface infiltration. This in turn, leads to a lot of design questions. Below is a list of six questions and answers we received from a recent webinar on designing CMP detention systems.
The goal of any CMP detention system should be to maximize the vertical space available to minimize the overall footprint, to reduce material, excavation, and backfill costs. To do this we recommend using the largest diameter pipe possible.
