EBS Greatly Minimizes Stormwater Detention Storage 2014
The Extention Basin and its integral flow distributors are proven innovative technology that vastly
improve the efficiency of stormwater management systems. EBS
is the ONLY system
proven to reduce stormwater volume.
The Extention Basin optimizes any detention basin and provides
full peak flow reductions over the full range of design
Operational history is extensive and
technical information is available.
Reduce Detention Storage
- The Extention Basin minimizes stormwater storage volume to
about 50% of conventional systems and works in conjunction with your
stormwater treatment BMP's, such as filtration and infiltration.
- EBS reduces the land area set aside for stormwater treatment
due to the reduced footprint
- EBS uses less material due to the reduced storage volume
Reduce Environmental Impact
- EBS mimics the original natural hydrograph
- EBS requires the absolute minimal land disturbance
- LEED credits are available for Site Design
We supply the field installable EBS flow
control panels. These are produced to the close tolerances
specified by EBS.

50% Less Volume
A typical EB system contains from one to three EBS flow
distributors that use
custom designed Flow Control Panels provided only by EBS, Inc.
The Extention Basin integrates all other required storage
amounts, such as runoff volume
reduction, channel protection volume
and water quality volume.
It does this by distributing flows using optimized flow control
Generally, the EBS requires only
50% of the storage of standard
stormwater systems. The distributions are performed using
high-level mathematical techniques using our proprietary software.
The Extention Basin system uses the minimal land area and storage
The Extention Basin does not "treat" stormwater,
it is not a BMP on its own - it merely distributes stormwater to
other BMP's and detention systems based on the regulatory
requirements. The Design Engineer may specify any form of
treatment or BMP.
