Stormwater Management for Non-Stormwater Engineers

14 Professional Development Hours

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

  • solve common hydrology and hydraulic engineering problems
  • employ the latest techniques in hydrology and hydraulic design procedures
  • apply various analysis methods to estimate flows in rivers and drainage infrastructure
  • assess the design of streams and rivers, culverts, bridge openings, drainage facilities, and stormwater management structures

Stormwater Management is a branch of engineering concerned with the study of water and the protection of people and property from the damaging effect of surface water.

The course was prepared for non-engineers and technicians who need a basic understanding of the three most commonly used branches of hydro-technical engineering:

  • Engineering hydrology
  • Hydraulics of drainage infrastructure
  • Drainage and stormwater management

This course provides the fundamentals without delving into complicated mathematical formulas. Lectures will include real-life examples and simple hands-on exercises and problem-solving.

Course Outline:

  • Day 1- Hydrology and Hydraulics
  • Introduction - Engineering Concepts
  • Hydrologic Cycle
  • Simplifications for ease of assessment
  • River and Open Channel Hydraulics
  • Hydraulic Structures
  • Day 2- Land Drainage and Stormwater Management
  • Why do we need stormwater management?
  • Review of stormwater best management practices and role of stormwater management
  • Drainage Design and Stormwater Management
