Site Engineering for Landscape Architects: Storm Water Management System Components (RV-10713)

Start Date
01/20/2017
End Date
01/20/2019
Description
In this course we will introduce a range of tools that may be employed singly or in combination on a single site to manage storm water. We will review the traditional storm water management system components and their principles and techniques. We will cover infiltration systems and detention systems. You'll get discussions of rainwater harvesting and constructed wetlands. We'll also explain the unifying concept of using planted structures or other landscape interventions to decentralize storm water management and minimize the need for extensive pipe and drain structures. You'll also get three case studies to analyze.
