This 6.5-hour course explores the current issues impacting stormwater management in Texas. The course will discuss the Harris county low impact development guidelines, pre-treatment to green infrastructure systems, hydraulic modeling for watershed analysis, low impact development hydrology, multi-functional stormwater management, underground detention systems and automated outfall systems.
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
Learning Outcome 1:
Learners will be able to review and select the right pre-treatment for a green infrastructure system, prevent erosion of vegetated swales, and identify low maintenance options for biorention systems.
Learning Outcome 2:
Learners will be able to use HydroCAD to model bioretention, perform cost-benefit analysis, and compare low impact development to traditional stormwater detention ponds in Texas.
Learning Outcome 3:
Learners will be able to explore ways to reduce a detention pond footprint, discuss bioswales and permeable pavement, and identify cost-effective solutions for low-cost maintenance.
Learning Outcome 4:
Learners will be able to compare underground detention systems and analyze the specifications and construction details, prevent failure and construction issues, and consider new innovative solutions.
