|Detention/Infiltration Basins||Vegetated depressions designed to store runoff on the surface and allow it to gradually infiltrate into soil. Infiltration basins are dry, except in periods of heavy rainfall, and may serve to other functions (e.g. recreation). They provide flow control through attenuation of runoff at the end of SuDS ﾑchainsﾒ.ﾠ Basins may also act as ﾓbioretention areasﾔ of shallow landscaped depressions, typically under-drained, relying on engineered soils, vegetation and filtration to reduce runoff and remove pollution.
