Abstract

On Lake Eola, stormwater runoff has been identified as a major source of pollution. Other lakes in Central Florida are experiencing similar decay due to stormwater runoff. A device has been examined for diversion of the initial flows to treatment before discharge into the lake. A graphical aid was developed to select the proper volume required for the device and was applied to a Lake Eola existing collection basin. A laboratory model was designed and constructed based on the scaled-down version of a collecting basin on Lake Eola. This model was used to demonstrate the concept, as well as, indicate the effects of several critical design variables. Recommendations on design for a Lake Eola device were made for possible improvements in the system itself.
