Abstract:Bending weirs are used to make use of all available in-situ storage upstream of an overflow structure in order to minimize the frequency of overflow events and the total overflow volume to receiving bodies of water thereby reducing the pollutant loading. This paper gives a brief description of the operating principles behind a bending weir as well as an example of its successful application in an existing overflow structure.
