A design aid is presented for sizing stormwater infiltration structures.
The proposed procedure is based on the hydrological storage equation
for an infiltration structure coupled with the Green and Ampt infiltration
equation. For the filling process, the two equations are solved simultaneously
using a numerical method, and the results are presented in chart
form. These charts are useful to determine the maximum water depth
in an infiltration structure. For the emptying process, the governing
equations are integrated analytically resulting in an algebraic equation
that can be solved for the emptying time explicitly. A practical
application is included to demonstrate the ease of the suggested
