1 
Detention timeThe actual time that a small amount of water is in a settling basin or flocculating basin. In storage reservoirs, it means the length of time water will be stored.

2 
Detention timeTime that is taken by a volume of water to fill in a storage reservoir or a tank with a constant flow of water.

3 
Detention timethe time required for a volume of water to pass through a tank at a given rate of flow; in storage reservoirs, the length of time water will be held before being used.

4 
Detention timethe time allowed for solids to collect in a settling tank. Theoretically detention time is equal to the volume of the tank divided by the flow rate.

6 
Detention timeThe theoretical length of time for water to pass through a basin or tank, if all the water moves with the same speed.

7 
Detention timeThe theoretical (calculated) time required for a given amount of water or wastewater to pass through a tank at a given rate of flow. The time required to fill a tank at a given flow. The actual time i [..]
