How do you setup a dry retention pond recovery model?

How do you setup a recovery analysis for a dry retention pond?


For instance, I have a dry retention pond that retains 8,000 cu-ft of stormwater runoff. I have to show that this volume is recovered within 72-hours via percolation. I have a site-specific geotechnical report with all the necessary parameters for the model but I'm am unsure of how to set this model up. I can run the analysis using a storge node with direct link to the boundary. However, all this is taking into account is the exfiltration rate and not the water table, porosity, confining layer, etc.. I know that aquifer conditions can be set but I'm lost on how to connect the data.


Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated!!
