SmartPOND Rotary Weir
Detention & Drainage
Our weather is constantly changing, yet our stormwater controls remain the same. SmartPOND takes passive stormwater controls and gives them brains, allowing for either pre-programmed stormwater pond management that actively measures and releases stormwater to match your regulatory regime, as well as application-based real time control that allows you to retain or release water at the tip of your fingers.
Through the use of an innovative, automated rotating skimmer, an entire watershed can be controlled automatically or at the push of a button. Routine inspections can be monitored remotely with the SmartPOND onboard camera, giving owners and 3rd party operators instant feedback on the condition of the system. Automated processes also make users aware of upcoming system maintenance needs, sending alerts to users’ smartphones/e-mail with advance notice of battery, solar panel or other component maintenance needs within a predetermined time frame. SmartPOND is the intelligent choice for your automated detention, retention or rainwater harvesting system.
SmartPOND Rotary Weir
A batch detention basin is an extended detention basin that is primarily used to remove particulate pollutants and to mimic predevelopment hydrology. Batch detention basins have superior water quality performance over traditional sedimentation/sand filters and achieve a total suspended solids (TSS) removal efficiency of 91%.
91% TSS removal = 20% less volume = smaller basin
No splitter box
No perforated pipes
SmartPOND is a prepackaged, easy to install, automated water level control valve that regulates stormwater depth and meets batch detention requirements per the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Edwards Aquifer Protection Plan (EAPP).
SmartPOND functions by rotating 90 degrees to open and close a rotary weir that is connected to an outfall pipe up to 24-inches in diameter. It is pre-programmed to hold water for 12 hours and then rotates slowly over a 48-hour period to drain the batch detention pond completely. Once empty, the bucket returns to its upright and closed position in anticipation of the next rainfall event. Fundamentally, SmartPOND allows TSS to settle out of the detained water body, the releases the cleanest water from the top of the pond.

SmartPOND takes passive stormwater controls and gives them brains, allowing for both pre-programmed stormwater quality management and application-based real-time controls. Routine inspections can be monitored remotely with the SmartPOND onboard camera, giving owners and operators instant feedback. Automated processes also make users aware of upcoming system maintenance needs by sending alerts to a smartphone or an email address. All components are modular and can easily be replaced by the user.
