The increasing frequency of flooding and a growing awareness of the effects of climate change are drivers towards a greater recognition of the importance of well designed, effective surface water drainage systems.
Aims & Objectives:
- To raise awareness of the importance of good design and ongoing effectiveness of surface water drainage systems
- To emphasize the significance of controlling pollution and containing storm outflows
- To give practical instruction in the design of surface and sub-soil drainage systems.
On completion of this course, delegates will be able to:
- Recognise the threats presented by inadequate drainage systems
- Apply the acquired skills and knowledge to design of surface and sub-surface systems
- Appreciate the broad range of options for provision of Sustainable Urban Drainage
- The need for Highway Drainage
- Surface Water Drainage: Systems & Design
- Controlling Pollution
- Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)
- Subsoil Drainage: Systems & Design
Mode of Delivery:
- Initial Assessment
- Tutorial/Group Exercises
- Tutor Presentation with visual aids - Video and PowerPoint
Benefits of Attending:
An increase and/or update in knowledge of the design of highway drainage systems
- Graduates and technicians newly involved in road design.
- Construction & Maintenance staff seeking an update of Drainage Design
Completion of pre-course questionnaire and identify any delegate’s concerns and incidents involving highway drainage. Delegates are requested to bring to the course a 1/500 scale rule and calculator for use on the tutorial.
