Course Description:
This course will review the key concepts of stormwater runoff conveyance and how they translate to associated maintenance issues typically encountered in the field. Maintenance issues will include erosion, sediment accumulation, failing pipe and ditch systems. The course includes basic field work to familiarize attendees with how to use a rod and level to verify slope and assist with problem solving.
