Given that in refineries typically account for about third of the total investment cost of building sedimentary ponds, increasing the efficiency of these ponds, in addition to increasing the useful life of other parts of the treatment plant, is very important economically and the environmently. The main purpose of this study is to study 16 models of urban sewage sedimentary basins and to evaluate their efficiency with the help of data analysis. Matlab software was used in this evaluation, and in the end, the average efficiency of the two methods, CCR and BCC, was calculated to have a general result. The first place went to model number two and the last place went to model number nine. Comparisons between performance ratios have been used to compare results. The correlation coefficient between CCR and BCC results is 0.754.
