More Info on Thirsty Duck

Thirsty Duck LP designs, manufactures and markets two lines of self-skimming, patented floating outlets that have the ability to achieve nearly constant discharge regardless of headwater depth. When sized to deliver the maximum allowable outflow rate, detention storage volume can be reduced by up to 50%, depending on site-specific hydrologic characteristics, analysis method and regulatory agency criteria. The excess system volume can be utilized to meet client- or project-specific needs such as providing additional water quality volume in environmentally sensitive areas and providing additional flood attenuation volume in flood prone areas or more buildable land when property size is limited. Thirsty Duck devices can be used in new construction or in retrofit applications.
