Generally speaking, the term “stormwater pond” may refer to any constructed basin that is built for the purpose of capturing and storing stormwater runoff, either temporarily or for an extended period of time, in order to prevent or mitigate downstream water quantity or quality impacts. Several distinct structure types (wet ponds, dry ponds, etc.) are included in this general category, and they are discussed in more detail in the Manual.
