Intermediate storage or buffering wastewater may be applicable, for example, when you have large and shorter overflows of wastewater and you do not want or can put a sufficiently large pipe to handle these cases.

Incoming flow

Is it the flow that fills the buffer volume.

Discharge time

The time that the emptying flow fills the buffer volume, ie during the time the buffer is filled.

Outgoing flow

Refers to the flow out of the buffer volume and which extends to the system.

Buffer volume

The volume that you need to store in order to meet the conditions laid down.
