Stormwater management and design – an introduction


Learning Outcomes

Delegates will gain an understanding of:

  • stormwater management concepts and activities.
  • stormwater systems, considering the relationships between primary flow, secondary flow and storage to be considered in design.
  • some of the key interrelationships within the stormwater management field.
  • some of the key structures in our urban stormwater systems.
  • stormwater treatment methods and what can be achieved with different methods, their strengths and their limitations.
  • Low Impact Design (Water Sensitive Design), the range of activities involved (not just engineering) and the different stages of the design process where it needs to be considered.

Target Audience

This course will be relevant for a wide range of stormwater practitioners, from beginners to those re-entering the market. It will also be of use to those managing teams and projects incorporating stormwater management components, to gain an understanding of some of the key issues their specialists need to consider.

Course Format

This course is run as an interactive workshop, where the presenter will go through a series of modules discussing different aspects of stormwater management, with plenty of class interaction.  Some calculation exercises (nothing too scary) are carried out to help illustrate and cement some of the recurring themes.

 The course is liberally laced with anecdotes from the presenters personal experiences.
