Accumulation of bottom sediments in nine highway wet detention ponds in central to south Florida were investigated. Sediment core samples were collected at each pond and were later analyzed in the laboratory. In-situ measurements of accumulated loose sediment depths above the parent soil in each pond were recorded. Existing models were used to calculate removal efficiency of suspended solids and to estimate the depth of accumulated sediments in each pond. Attempts were made to correlate measured and calculated sediment accumulation rates and the surrounding drainage area.
