A special basin used for infiltration of rainwater into the groundwater. The basin is normally not filled with water.
on Wikipedia: "It is essentially a shallow artificial pond that is designed to infiltrate stormwater though permeable soils into the groundwater aquifer. Infiltration basins do not discharge to a surface water body under most storm conditions, but are designed with overflow structures (pipes, weirs, etc.) that operate during flood conditions."
