Comprehensive Review of Drainage Design Methods for Culvert, Open Channel and Storm Sewer Design

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Consider technical issues in design related to planning and environmental impact
  • Enhance protection of property from flood damage and reduce pollution at a lower cost
  • Select computer software that is most suitable to your application of urban drainage design
  • Participate in public consultation meetings with confidence
  • Employ design methodologies learned in the course on your next urban drainage project

Changes in land use affect urban drainage and present challenges for engineers who must deal with drainage planning, runoff analysis, storm sewer hydraulics and watercourse drainage within government regulations.

This course provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of culvert, open channel, and storm sewer design, and allows designers already in the field to update their knowledge. The course will also address the use of computer software for design work. Workshops will allow you to work through examples using different methodologies and available software.
