Eighty percent of a municipality’s problems are caused by twenty percent of its sanitary sewers and storm water drainage systems. The best way to avoid the majority of future problems is to pay greater attention to them during the design phase.
This 2-day workshop is intended for those who require better understanding of sanitary sewer and stormwater drainage systems design. The participant will be expected to complete a sanitary sewer and storm water drainage system design under instructor guidance by using first principle methods and/or design aids.

Additional Information

Objective To understand the basics of sanitary and storm water system design, to develop skills to design new sanitary sewer and stormwater drainage systems as well as to design additions or replacements for existing systems. Materials Required Standard engineering calculator with scientific functions Laptop for software training (if available) Target Audience Municipal engineers; public works directors; city engineers; superintendents of operations; wastewater system managers; safety inspectors and procurement officers from municipalities; consulting engineers; technicians and technologists; sewer construction contractors and other individuals who need a basic understanding of sanitary sewer and stormwater drainage system design and are currently employed in the wastewater management field. Special Features You will receive comprehensive course notes with all design charts, graphs and data that will serve as reference for future use. You will receive training on two of the top commercial software available in the market for the design of sanitary and storm sewer systems (StormCAD and SewerCAD). You will receive a limited edition version (academic version) of the CAD design software package and a reference book on Engineering Hydraulics application Program Outline (1.2 CEUs / 12 PDHs) Day I Sanitary Sewer System Planning For a Sanitary Sewer System Planning objectives Layout objectives Environmental assessment process Hydrology and Hydraulics Pressure Flow Gravity flow in pipes Non-uniform open channel flow Computer applications in hydraulics Hydrology The hydrologic cycle Rainfall and surface water Groundwater Sanitary Sewer System Design Peaking factors Minimum and maximum velocities Self-cleansing velocities Minimum pipe size Capacity design Infiltration Sewer pipes Separation of water main and sewers Optimum bedding conditions Cover Ductile iron pipe location Crossings Manholes Workshop I - Design of a Sanitary Sewer Participants will work on a design exercise in small groups under instructor guidance Sanitary Sewer Systems Loading Extended period simulation Sewer CAD introduction Sewer CAD software demo training Day II Stormwater Drainage System Estimating Storm Runoff Rational method Runoff coefficients Rain fall intensity Time of concentration SCS Method Effects of land developments Layout and design Best management practices Storm Water Quality Control Sedimentation basins Swales Bioretention systems CTWS Wet ponds Case study Floodplains Control of Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Workshop II - Design of Stormwater Drainage System Participants will work on a design exercise in small groups under instructor guidance Storm Sewer Systems Storm sewer design Cost estimation Alternatives analysis Storm CAD introduction Storm CAD software demo training After Attending This Workshop You Will Be Able To Understand basics of sanitary and storm water sewer system design and application Design a new sewer system Back an analysis of existing systems for any possible problems Learn how to use the commercial package Sewer CAD and Storm CAD Discover the numerous issues to consider when planning sewer and stormwater drainage systems at a given site Learn to design sanitary sewer and storm water drainage systems to meet given
